Loch Etive

"Loch Etive, closed in on all sides by wild and varied mountains, formed an inland scene, in which loveliness seemed to strive with majesty". From 'Remarks on Local Scenery and Manners in Scotland' vol.1 by John Stoddart.

Loch Etive is fed from the north east by the River Etive and eventually meets the Firth of Lorn and the open sea at Connel. The north end of the Loch is dominated by the view up Glen Etive. In the 1700s there was a track down the south side of the Loch to Taynuilt which was used as a major access route across the Highlands
