The Buachaille Etive Mor

Buachaille Etive Mor Prints

The Buachaille Etive Mor is an icon amongst the peaks of the Scottish Highlands which explains why I have produced a separate page for my Buachaille Etive Mor Prints. Standing proud above the Rannoch Moor and guarding the entrance to Glencoe and Glen Etive, its vertical buttresses and narrow ridges soar like a cathedral high into the sky. The mountain is instantly recogniseable, highly respected and held in affection by the many mountaineers who have come to know it.

The mountain stretches for seven kilometres over four summits, the highest of which is Stob Dearg, overlooking the Rannoch Moor. Of the four summits, Stop Dearg is the best known, the most climbed and photographed. My prints of Buachaille Etive Mor have been captured from two principal locations; from beside the Rivers Etive and Coupall. The views from the River Etive, taken in winter and at sunrise not only emphasise the mountain’s isolated position overlooking Rannoch Moor but are enhanced by the choice of foreground that includes the river tumbling over a series of shallow waterfalls and shingle beds.

The views from beside the River Coupall highlight the magnificent rock architecture of the mountain’s north face to perfection and show in detail all the well known features such as The Crowberry Tower, Crowberry Ridge, Crowberry Gully, Curved Ridge and the North Buttress.
