The gatekeeper to Glencoe and Glen Etive. It's a Scottish icon. Good walking and good climbing....and excellent photographic opportunities.

A magnificent mountain that starts a fabulous drive down the Glen Etive. This mountain is not only spectacular but was made famous in the James Bond Film, Skyfall. Truly a must when in Scotland.
