Black Mount from Rannoch Moor /

Black Mount range in Argyll and Bute Its four Munros include Stob Ghabhar, Stob a' Choire Odhair, Creise and Meall a' Bhuiridh. Rannoch Moor in Scotland is a large boggy moorland to the west of Loch Rannoch a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Area of Conservation. Peat deposits pose major difficulties to builders of roads and railways. When the West Highland Line was built across Rannoch Moor, its builders had to float the tracks on a mattress of tree roots, brushwood and thousands of tons of earth and ashes.
