Sombre Etive   Glen Etive, Glencoe, Scotland

I am quite prepared to believe that most folk will not like this joyless composition one little bit.  There is no spark of light, no hope it is to all intents bleak and miserable.  I can tell you it was already raining hard when I arrived, not only was there no respite it actually got so bad that the mountain disappeared entirely.  So why persist, well its quite simple, this is Scotland as it so often is, if you look past the bleakness and the misery it is undeniably majestic and wild. It is austere, hard, raw, this is how Scotland is once you take all the make up off and that mood is conveyed in abundance here.
