The Buckle

Photo Information
One of Britain's favourite mountains for climbers and photographers Buachhaille Etive Mor stands at the edge of Rannoch Moor at the approach to Glens Etive and Glen Coe. Commonly called just 'The Buckle' it has four distinct peaks above 3,000 feet. The highest of them, Stob Dearg (3,345 feet) dominates the view at the approach to Glen Etive and Glen Coe from Rannoch Moor. I captured it in autumn light last October.
