Glen Etive

Glen Etive in the Highlands.

Timber seems to be the most important part of the local economy in this beautiful valley: they were hard at work when I happened by at 6am on a Sunday morning.

It is a truly remote place, for the UK. The people in this valley are miles from anywhere, and during winter truly will get cut off from supplies (unlike, say, the Yorkshire Dales where even if hilltop farms are cut off, they are still close enough to walk down to open roads etc).
