The Great Herdsman
"Buachaille Etive Mòr" - watercolour - 25 x 36 cm
This mountain stands at the entrance to Glencoe and at the head of Glen Etive. It looks out over the vast expanse of Rannoch Moor and dominates the view for miles. It is a well-known landmark to anyone travelling north on the road to Fort William. The name, Buachaille Etive Mòr, means "The Great Herdsman of Etive", and it has a sister peak called Buachaille Etive Beag, or "The Little Herdsman of Etive".
