Crofts and cattle in Glen Orchy

Cattle graze in front of thatched houses in Glen Orchy. The River Orchy runs through the glen (valley) from Bridge of Orchy, through the Strath of Orchy, to Dalmally and the eastern end of Loch Awe. According to Dr Joseph Macintyre in the First Statistical Account of Scotland (1792) there were at least ten settlements here with a population of 152 people. Almost the whole glen is now planted with conifers
