Two of the beautiful lakes we encountered.

Glen Etive

On whim, we took an infrequently traveled (mostly dirt) road, locally called "the Road to Nowhere," through Glen Etive down to Loch Etive. Loch Etive is really not a lake; it is actually an inlet from the sea.


DunAdd was the seat of the Kingdom of Dalriada (whose origins are in Ireland) from the 6th to the 9th century. Part of the inauguration ritual of the King of Dalriada was that the new king placed his foot in the imprint of a foot carved in the rock pictured on the left. The photo on the right is of an ancient Pictish carving a of boar, still faintly visible, nearby the carved foot imprint.
