Glen Etive, Scottish Highlands

This evening, I am posting information on the stunning, Glen Etive in the Scottish Highlands.

This valley runs roughly north-south on the western edge of Rannoch Moor. It is accessed via a single track road which runs for 14 miles to its terminus at Loch Etive which is a tidal loch (lake) at foot of the glen. The road is accessed off the A82 opposite the Kingshouse Hotel.

The road is slow going but offers superb views of the mountainous scenery with features including:

  • Red deer.
  • Lush greenery.
  • River and burns ( streams).
  • Extensive rhododendron vegetation which can be colourful in the early summer.

Population is light extending to a handful of houses and farms.

The glen has featured in films such as Braveheart and Skyfall.
