One of Scotland’s best known Highland Glens and the centre for some of the best mountaineering in the country. The ‘Glen of Weeping’ has a very haunting atmosphere probably due to its being the site of the infamous massacre of the MacDonald Clan by the Campbells in 1692.

The more usual views would be from the head of the glen with the dramatic Buachaille Etive Mhor and Black Rock Cottage or of Three Sisters in the very heart of the glen. However, I preferred this gentler view looking towards the foot of the glen with Loch Leven in the foreground, the very distinctive Pap of Glencoe on the left and the  Anoach Eagach Ridge in the centre.
