Glen Etive is a beautiful glen. The glen is named after the river that flows through around 15 miles towards Loch Etive. Over it's course the river passes over some rugged landscape which generate a number of stunning waterfalls. One of these is Eas an Fhir Mhoir, a waterfall where the Etive passes over granite rocks. The lovely reds of the rock really enhance the colour of the water. Getting to the waterfall requires a tricky downhill climb and you will undoubtedly hear the waterfall well before you can see it.
