Glen Coe, Buachaille Etive Mòr, Scotland by EuropeTrotter

Glen Coe is probably Scotland’s most famous and most scenic Highland glen. Visitors from all over the world flock here year after year, inspired by the sheer scale and grandeur of its surrounding mountains.
The first view of Glencoe for most people will be of the dominating and impressive peak of Buachaille Etive Mor – The great heardsman of Etive from across the bleak expanse of Rannoch Moor.
Long exposure : 125 s

Buachaille Etive Mòr, Glencoe, Scotland by EuropeTrotter

Buachaille Etive Mor is one of the best known and loved of all the Munro peaks. The epic view of the mountain from the road makes it appear quite unassailable and is one of the most photographed sights in Scotland.

Winter’s Grip by AlisterBenn

This is close to what I wanted, but the spot was extremely precarious and I wasn’t keen on taking a swim at -12C.

We’d been encouraged south from home by a forecast for more snow and were not disappointed as we came though the Glen before first light. Feet of snow lay roadside and blanketed the hills.

Thick ice ringed the river and the place looked a treat.

The light began to grow, but it was not until the sun was up that we got a little bit of colour, which created the cool to warm contrast I had been hoping for.

I write educational material for creative and expressive photographers. We run small group Photo Tours & Workshops locally here in NW Scotland and in Iceland.

Buachaille Etive Mòr by EdNorton

Buachaille Etive Mòr, Glencoe area in the Scottish Highlands.

Having previously been to this location on the very first day but with horrible weather and light, I knew I needed to get back here to try and get a ‘yeh, I’m’a hang it on the wall!’ effort. It’s really easy to get to this viewpoint – just as you turn off the main road by King’s Hotel and start heading towards Loch Etive along a single track road, there’s 2 little parking spots either side of the very first bridge you come to. It’s not in view as you park so you’ll just have to scramble up a little embankment and then across a marshy field (or at least it was for me at the time) to get to this waterfall.
As with every other day, the weather was very changeable so it was back and forth to the van to hide from the heavy rain and then set up again waiting for a little window of good sunset light.
