Loch Leven and Stob Coire nan Lochan

This view looks south east from the shores of Loch Leven. Loch Leven is a narrow sea loch, 17 km long, to the east of Loch Linnhe. It stretches from Kinlochleven in the east to South Ballachulish in the west.

The island seen to the left of the picture is Eilean Munde. The island is the traditional burial ground of the Camerons of Callart, the Stewarts of Ballachulish and Ardsheal, and the Macdonalds of Glencoe. The island takes its name from St Fintan Mundus, who settled there for a period in the 7th century and founded a church on the island.

The settlement pictured in the distance is Glencoe village. The mountain in the centre of the image is Stob Coire nan Lochan, a subsidiary peak of the Munro known as Bidean nam Bian. Stob Coire nan Lochan is classed as a 'Munro top', and rises to 1115m (3658 feet) at its highest point.
