View of Glen Croe in the Western Highlands of Scotland. The name Glen Croe means ‘glen of the cattle’ and it was along this valley that cattle were herded to the lowland markets. The River Croe flows through the glen from its source in a deep corrie between Sgurr Fhuaran and Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe to Loch Long. Glen Croe is well known for its dark and bleak environment and travellers to the area often comment on the foreboding and depressing atmosphere of the area.
