Looking to Glen Strae, Dalmally

This photograph shows a croft house near Dalmally, overlooking Glen Strae. The thatching on the buildings has been secured with ropes. In the foreground are ten lengths of pine timber, probably Scots pine.

The village of Dalmally lies at the junction of Glen Orchy, Glen Lochy and Glen Strae, near the point where the River Orchy flows into Loch Awe. Nearby is a monument to the Gaelic poet Duncan Ban Macintyre (1724-1812).

The major archive of monochrome topographical views by James Valentine & Co. is held by the University of St Andrews Library. For further details of this collection please contact the Library, or refer to Special Collections at St Andrews
