The Misty Hills of (and near) Glencoe — Part 2

Well, there are a lot of misty hills in the highlands of Scotland but not all of them are in Glencoe. It seems that I made a topographical error in my posting a couple of days ago. One of my readers pointed put that the photos I posted were of locations about 30 miles from Glencoe! He also went on to say that you don’t enter Glencoe on Highway A82 until you pass the cone-shaped mountain called Buachaille Etive Mor. Well, today’s photos are from our next viewpoint stop that day and we had not passed that mountain yet; so technically I guess we weren’t yet in Glencoe. But some of today’s shots include the chair lift of a ski resort called Glencoe Mountain; so in a way we were already in Glencoe. But not really in the glen yet.

More clouds, hills, moor plus a rock.

About eight minutes after Glencoe Mountain we passed the magnificent pyramid called Buachaille Etive Mor. Another nine minutes and we arrived at our final Glencoe viewpoint. I’ll show those photos tomorrow.

Buachaille Etive Mor. I took this shot from inside the bus. Our driver stopped for about a minute just so all of the photographers on the bus could get a shot or two.
