we drove to glen etive on the way to fort williams on 9.6.2017.
we drove past glencoe mountain, with the view of Buachaille Etive Mor down the road, guarding the entrance to glen etive like a sentinel.
(the above photo taken at a view-stop down the road looking directly at the magnificient Buachaille Etive Mor).
arrived at the start of the glen etive single track road scenic drive.
this the much talked-about film locations for james bond skyfall & braveheart movies!
we followed the scenic drive along river etive, which flows into loch etive.
such a wonderful landscape!
river etive has many streams & tributories, and rapids…apparently grade 4 rapids for kayakers & a range of pools & waterfalls.
scenic & serene indeed!
we did not drive all the way to loch glen but most of it anyway, the drive took 1hr 10mins.
an invigorating drive, but weather was wet & not co-operative & drizzling.
we drove on to the vista view-stop & sat on a bench to stare at Buachaille Etive Mor.
