Cave in Glen Croe

"Upon entering Glen Croe, a new scene of savage magnificence is presented, by the bold rocky mountains, which shoot up to the clouds, and approach so close, as to imprison you between their folds."

This illustration of a cave within Glen Croe was taken from "Remarks on Local Scenery and Manners in Scotland" vol.1 by John Stoddart. Glen Croe marks the northern boundary of the Cowal Peninsula. It is bordered by the Cobbler (Ben Arthur) and Ben Donich and ends in the north at The Rest and Be Thankful
