Photographer's Note

Hi TE members and other viewers!

Today I wanted to share another nice scottish landscape, this time during my trip to Glen Orchy. Beautifull area with many places near the river when we can stop and take some rest. Really quiet and wild.

Some information about the valley taken from http://www.loch-awe.com/history/glenorchy.htm :

GLEN ORCHY is the beautiful valley, twelve miles long, in which the River Orchy runs between Bridge of Orchy and Dalmally.
There were at least ten settlements in the Glen in 1792, with 152 people, when the Minister of the Parish carried out a census. Nowadays only one of these is a permanent home, one name has been used for a later house, with permanent residents, three are used for holiday places, and the rest are either ruins or have disappeared. There are two recent properties, and the population of the Glen is about ten. Many people emigrated from this area in earlier centuries, and we know of at least three towns called Glenorchy elsewhere in the world.

Thank You for any criticques and comments!
cheers!!
