Original Paintings of Glen Garry and Knoydart

by Sandra Hugill

Knoydart is legendary amongst climbers and walkers for its inaccessibility and wild grandeur and the Glens of Garry and Loyne, along with their southerly neighbours Glen Kingie and Glen Dessary, not only host several of its most easterly Munros but also provide the best mainland access into this great wilderness. Glen Garry's most notable feature is its freshwater loch, fed by waters from the dammed Loch Quoich upstream and draining into Loch Oich in the Great Glen just 5 kilometers downstream. Loch Garry is much photographed for its romantic setting and also because a quirk of perspective makes it appear like a map of Scotland. Glen Loyne was once connected by road from Tomdoun in Glen Garry but, as was the case with the enlargement of Loch Quoich, many old roads and traditional footpaths were flooded and a newer road was built higher up leaving the loch isolated with its waters taken north as a feeder for Loch Cluanie.

This section of the gallery is intended to cover a very large area and the mountains numerous, the geography complex, photographic objectives remote and access lengthy. To complicate matters even further the weather can be extremely unreliable and good days rare.
