Beinn Ruadh, Cowal Peninsula, South West Highlands, Scotland.

The Cowal Peninsula, that ribbon of land situated between the great sea lochs of Loch Fyne to the west and Loch Long to the east, is as remote as it gets in the south west highlands of Scotland - a land of rough, craggy hills which punch well above their weight and which, on account of their relatively diminutive size, are ignored by most hillwalkers.
This is a classic view of the area, taken on a perfect winter's day for photography. From the 620 metre vantage point of the south top of the Graham of Beinn Ruadh, to the south east of Loch Eck, the eye is led along the narrow ribbon of the loch, past the rugged hills of Creachan Mor and Clach Bheinn on the opposite bank, and on north to the distant, higher mountains of the south west highlands around Crianlarich and Tyndrum.
