Glen Coe ruin

By Sue_R  
We came across this ruin when we set off to walk up 2,323ft Meall Bhalach in Glen Coe on Friday.

The weather was beautiful when we started out, despite a forecast of rain. It began spitting on our way back to the car and the heavens opened the minute we climbed into it. It's very rare that we're that lucky Smile

We could see the rain coming across the hills all around us and heading straight towards us on the way back to the car so I'll post those images later. Yes, you really should go if you can. We lived in Scotland for 16 years before moving to Cumbria and go back at every opportunity.

You've made wonderful use of the remains of the cottage in the foreground - the diamond shape echoes the shapes of the mountains.

An intriguing spot Sue, hard to work out exactly what could have once been there in the distant past. Maybe a shelter for live stock but there doesn't seem to be an opening. A very good composition though and excellent subject matter.
As for the title, don't be so hard on yourself Sue WinkSmile

The mountains could be anywhere, but combined with the brown of the bracken, can only be Scotland.
