Tour Scotland Travel Video After Storm Hector Glen Etive Highlands

Tour Scotland travel video of a waterfall in Glen Etive, after heavy rain due to Storm Hector on ancestry visit to the Highlands of Scotland. At the north end of Glen Etive lie the two mountains known as the Herdsmen of Etive, Buachaille Etive Mòr and Buachaille Etive Beag. Other peaks accessible from the Glen include Ben Starav, located near the head of Loch Etive, and Beinn Fhionnlaidh on the northern side of the glen. The River Etive is one of Scotland's most popular and challenging white water kayaking runs. Glen Etive has been used as the backdrop to many movies, among them Braveheart and Skyfall. The Fachen is also known as the Dwarf of Glen Etive. In the Ulster Cycle of Irish mythology, Deirdre and her love Naoise founded Glen Etive after fleeing Ulster. History Blog post of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to travel and visit one day.
