This is the River Clyde in Glasgow. The bridge is the one that can be seen in the background on the BBC Reporting Scotland News. The shot was taken from the BBC Centre.

End of summer in Scotland.

  

Glen Etive (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Èite) is a glen in the Highlands of Scotland. The River Etive (Scottish Gaelic: Abhainn Èite) rises on the peaks surrounding Rannoch Moor, with several tributary streams coming together at the Kings House Hotel,[1] at the head of Glen Coe. From the Kings House, the Etive flows for about 18 km, reaching the sea loch, Loch Etive. The river and its tributaries are popular with whitewater kayakers and at high water levels it is a test piece of the area and a classic run.

 

At the north end of Glen Etive lie the two mountains known as the "Herdsmen of Etive": Buachaille Etive Mòr and Buachaille Etive Beag. Other peaks accessible from the Glen include Ben Starav, located near the head of Loch Etive, and Beinn Fhionnlaidh on the northern side of the glen.

 

A narrow road from the Kings House Hotel runs down the glen, serving several houses and farms. This road ends at the head of the loch, though rough tracks continue along both shores.

 

The River Etive is one of Scotland's most popular and challenging white water kayaking runs. It provides a multitude of solid Grade 4(5) rapids with a variety of falls and pool drops.

From my hiking trip to Scotland in Summer 2013... It was such a great time and a great experience!

A stormy day at Scotland Island yesterday. As an Island community accessed entirely by boat, the jetty is a very common scene.

 

My first time ever on the Island, invited by some good friends to spend the afternoon with them, we had a great time walking around the Island, taking cover to avoid the rain squalls and enjoying the sunny patches in between. Thanks Ivor and Panina!

Just for fun and a bit of over processing ;)

Oh, ye'll tak' the high road, and I'll tak' the low road,

And I'll be in Scotland afore ye;

But me and my true love will never meet again

On the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

Buachaille Etive Mor sits at the entrance to Glen Etive.

its the classic mountain and commands views from across Glencoe.

Here it is lit up resplendant in a December, early morning sunrise

I've been really busy at work and today is the first day off I've had for weeks, so I was up early and out taking photos. It was well worth it as the cloud you can see in the distance soon spread over.

This valley off to the side of Glen Etive drew my attention since it appeared to consist of a series of triangles and I liked the watercourse criss-crossing the frame. Viewed upside down, it looks entirely like a child's 'fit the blocks together toy' and very little like a photograph of landscape! The sunlight never did get around to cooperating fully - or rather, the clouds didn't - but I still like the geometry of this.
