Where the river Etive meets the sea

By hrsimages
On a grey, rainy November day when staying warm indoors definitely seems the best option, it is good to look back through images taken during sunnier times of the year.
We had made a first sailing trip to the head of Loch Etive in 2014, a wonderfully mountainous and tortuous sea loch on the west coast of Scotland which winds its way full 28km inland before terminating at the seaward end of Glen Etive where the river of the same name forms a good example of a braided delta. This feature is seen to best effect by climbing a few hundred metres onto the tops on either side of the Loch. On this occasion it was easiest for me to hike up from the left side off the head of the loch (where the boat can be seen anchored) onto the summit of the Trilleachan Slabs (767m) from where one gets a nice panoramic view over the Loch, the river delta and up the glen towards the mountains of Glencoe.
