Pap of Glencoe and 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.

There are a number of small islands on Loch Leven. The best known is Eilean Munde, 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 Pap of Glencoe, known in Gaelic as Sgurr na Cìche, is seen in the background of this image. It has a distinctive conical shape, and measures 742 metres (2434 ft).
