Black Rock Cottage and Buachaille Etive Mor

Buachaille Etive Mor stands at the junction of Glen Coe and Glen Etive. The mountain has five peaks, the highest of these being Stob Dearg at 3352ft. The name comes from the Gaelic for 'the great herdsman of Glen Etive' and it is a popular hill with walkers. It is in an area of land owned by the National Trust for Scotland.

To the east of the bottom of the mountain, close to the path of the West Highland Way, stands Black Rock Cottage. The view in this photograph of the cottage and the mountain in the background is one that has been reproduced many times in photographs and paintings
