Loch Tulla and Stob Ghabhar

Loch Tulla is in the Argyll and Bute area, just north of the village of Bridge of Orchy. The mountain in this image is Stob Ghabhar. It is 1090m high and is one of four Munros on the Black Mount, the other three being Stob a' Choire Odhair, Creise and Meall a' Bhuiridh.

The renowned Gaelic poet Duncan Ban MacIntyre, known in his native tongue as Donnchadh Bàn Mac an t-Saoir, was born in the southern foothills of Stob Ghabhar in 1724. He lived in the area until 1767 then moved to Edinburgh, where he remained until his death in 1824. Nature was a central theme of many of his poems, his most well-known being 'Moladh Beinn Dòbhrainn' (Praise of Ben Dorain).
