Ben Venue, the mountain in the heart of The Trossachs is also the mountain of the goblins. As little as 300 years ago goblins were rumoured to live in caves on the slopes of the mountain.
Loch Katrine is the loch in the distance. On the left is Glengyle, birthplace of the famous outlaw Rob Roy MacGregor. The photo was taken from the summit of Ben Venue.
