Glencoe was created when the great ice cap flowed inexorably down from Rannoch Moor, carving an uncompromising line through ancient volcano and on to the sea.

The south flank, sometimes seeming perpetually dark, is comprised of the Three Sisters - Beinn Fhada, Gearr Aonach and Aonach Dubh; to the north, kissed by the sun, is a towering jagged rock edge held aloft by unassailable steeps - the Aonach Eagach Ridge.
