Glen Etive

A striking fair weather view of Glen Etive, located just west of Glen Coe. The imposing mountains Buchaille Etive More and Buchaille Etive Beag are located at the north end of the glen. The River Etive, whose source is in the high passes surrounding Rannoch Moor, meanders through the glen.

According to the Ulster cycle of Irish Celtic mythology, the settlement in the Glen was founded by Deirdre and her lover Naoise, who fled their native Ulster to escape the nefarious intentions of the King of Ulster, Connchobar.
