Rannoch Moor and Mountains of Glencoe, Argyllshire

This postcard contains a painting Rannoch Moor, with the dramatic mountains of Glencoe in the background.

Rannoch Moor, a designated National Heritage site, is a fifty square mile area of moorland. It is famous for the wildlife it nurtures and is the sole habitat of the Rannoch rush, a plant which grows in the moor's peat bogs.

Glen Coe, the ancestral homeland of the MacDonalds, is famed for its dramatic and picturesque surroundings. Mountains such as Buchaille Etive Mor and the Three Sisters typify the rugged scenery. It is a popular destination year round for those simply wishing to witness its beauty, and those who wish to explore its every nook and cranny.
