Ballachulish and Loch Leven, Scotland July 2011

Carrying on my photographic tour, I visited a place called Ballachulish which is past Glencoe in the Highlands in Scotland. The name Ballachulish comes from the Gaelic name for “Village of the Narrows”. The beautiful loch that flows through Ballachulish is called Loch Leven.

The largest settlement carrying the name of Ballachulish lies on the south side of Loch Leven, a mile or so west of the village of Glencoe. This started life as Laroch in the 1500s.

The first photo below is from the head of Kinlochleven just heading out of Glencoe town before reaching Ballachulish.

The next photos were from Ballachulish.
