Ben More from Strath Fillan

Strath Fillan is located near Crianlarich. Strath Fillan, and the River Fillan which runs through it, are named after St Fillan. St Fillan was born in Ireland and in the early 8th century moved to Strath Fillan and built a church there. The Holy Pool next to the church was said to have been blessed by the saint and was reputed to have healing powers. Robert the Bruce venerated St Fillan, and in 1314 the relics of the saint were taken to the field of battle at Bannockburn. Bruce was later to found a priory in Strath Fillan.

Ben More, in Gaelic A' Beinn Mòr, is shown in the background of this image on the left. The mountain has an elevation of 1174 metres (3852 ft) and is classified as a Munro.
