This photograph was taken from the bridge at Sligachan, with the isolated, granite mass of Marsco, and Fiaclan Dearg, its distinctive shoulder, standing sentinel. To the left are the lower slopes of Glamaig, and in the middle background is Garbh-bheinn 2644ft (806m) with Blà Bheinn 3044ft (928m) in the far distance.
