Below are a selection of mini panormas of Glen Lichd, Morvich, Loch Duich, Carr Brae, Letterfearn, Ratagan and the Mam Ratagan Pass in the highlands of Scotland. All of them are only a fraction of the size of the full size panorama on the site and typically each one is only showing a portion of the full panorama.
This web page is intended to provide a search engine friendly preview of a small sample of the panoramas on this web site.
The first set of images below are all taken along the track that leads through Glen Lichd. The mountains of Kintail reach high above on both sides, revealing corries and precipices galore. The river Croe runs near the track for the entire route, and though the main road to Klye is only the other side of the Five Sisters of Kintail, you are quickly enveloped in a sense of wilderness.
This is a portion of a 360° panorama shot at the bank of the river Croe near Glen Lichd House at the end of the track.
A little further along the bank of the river, just along from Glen Lichd House.

Glen Lichd - near Morvich
After following the main track, once Glen Lichd House as been reached, (owned by the Edinburgh Mountaineering Club) there are plenty of places to picnic and further footpaths to extend your route, though these are more challenging than the 4.5 mile track just walked. We now tend to do this walk on a damp day, or after a lot of rain. It's an excellent place to see Golden Eagles, we have seen them in this glen on a number of times, our best sighting being after a morning of heavy rain. By the afternoon the cloud was lifting and we were just leaving to begin the long tramp back down the glen. A pair of eagles then swooped down from a ridge and continued to fly above us as we walked until disappearing over one of the Five Sisters of Kintail. There is also plenty of bird life in the river, you are likely to see dippers and sandpipers.

Loch Duich (on a still day)
You've got to be lucky to see Loch Duich on a still day (or live nearby).
No cloud but a little bit too much movement on the loch and it wasn't quite high tide. Oh well maybe next time.
Loch Duich (in the evening)
A view of the Five Sisters of Kintail from the shore of Loch Duich.
Loch Duich (in November)
A view of Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail with a dusting of snow in November. The old church used to serve Ratagan and Letterfearn but is now a private home.

The view from the Mam Ratagan Pass looking over Loch Duich and the Five Sisters of Kintail. The road over the pass is as impressive as the view, but don't try it when its icy.
