Pictures by David McConnell Hunter
Glencoe and Surroundings

The summer of 2005 has been one of the best that Scotland has seen in many years giving me a great opportunity to capture some of its glorious scenery under ideal conditions. Here are a few scenes which I hope you will enjoy.

Looking east across Loch Linnhe from Clovullin in Ardgour towards Glencoe
(the deep notched valley in the centre). The rocks in the foreground
are a favourite resting place of many grey seals.

Looking north towards Glencoe with Buchaille Etive Mor (the Great Shepherd)
in the background. Blackrock Cottage belongs to the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club.

This is a classic view from tiny Loch Urr looking east towards Buchaille Etive Mor
and the pass through to Glencoe known as the Lairig Gartain (pass of the enclosure).

View looking east from the head of Loch Etive towards Stob Dubh (Black Peak).

Looking east towards Beinn Sgulaird (meaning obscure).

Looking south across Loch Leven towards Glencoe Village and the cliffs of
Aonach Dubh (Black Ridge) and Bidean nam Bian (Peak of the Mountains).

This view is from North Ballachulish looking west across Loch Linnhe towards
the Ardgour Mountains. Garbh Beinn (Rough Mountain) is in the centre.

This 4km ridge is one of the classic sights in Glencoe.

The sharp peak on the left is Sgorr na Ciche, best known as the Pap of Glencoe.
The peak on the right is Mam na Gualainn (The Shoulder)

The steep cliffs on the north side of Am Bodach (Old Man) in the Mamore
mountains. Bidean nam Bian near Glencoe can be seen in the distance.

Looking east from Ardgour towards Ben Nevis across Loch Linnhe.

This view is looking north towards Ben Nevis from the top of Am Bodach (the Old Man)
in the Mamore Mountain Range. The sharp peak on the right is Carn Mor Dearg (big
red peak). The mountain stream left of centre is known as the Allt Coire Eoghainn
(stream of Ewan's Corrie). A corrie looks like a large scoop that has been taken out of
the side of a mountain and outside of Scotland is usually known as a cirque.
