Loch Tulla

Loch Tulla is located 3 km north of Bridge of Orchy. The mountain in the centre right of this image is Stob Ghabhar. It has an elevation of 1090 metres and is classed as a Munro. It is one of the four Munros of the Black Mount (the other three being Stob a' Choire Odhair, Creise and Meall a' Bhuiridh).

Donnchadh Bàn Mac an t-Saoir, known in English as Duncan Ban MacIntyre (1724-1812), the renowned Gaelic poet, was born in the southern foothills of Stob Ghabhar at the croft of Druim Liaghart near Victoria Bridge. He lived in the area until 1767 and then moved to Edinburgh, where he was to remain for the rest of his life. Nature was a central theme of many of Duncan Bàn's poems. He is best known for his poem 'Moladh Beinn Dòbhrainn' ('Praise of Ben Dorain').
