Great views on the lonely mountain

When you approach Glencoe you spot this hill/mountain first. Worth taking a foto off , really impressive. Maybe one day will climb this one ;-)

It looks tough and it was. Check avalanche conditions if there is any snow about. Views from the top were amazing. Well worth the effort. Highly recommend!

One of the best destinations for walkers, climbers and outdoors people in the UK and if the sun shines there's nowhere better in the world, if it's raining, wait a while, things will improve!

A magnificent mountain that starts a fabulous drive down the Glen Etive. This mountain is not only spectacular but was made famous in the James Bond Film, Skyfall. Truly a must when in Scotland.

A beautiful drive....even in the rain! If you like waterfalls this is for you. Didn't go to the end of the road as we were pushed for time but I believe there is a loch there. Single track road with passing places.
