Somewhere in Scotland?

I have been digitising my father's slide collection and came across a 1980s photograph of his Plus 8 whilst touring in Scotland. This was a very underexposed photo but through the miracles of recovery software I have managed to to turn it into a half decent photograph reminiscent of a 1930s postcard. It certainly seems to sum up the romance of Morganeering in my mind. My mother - 99 this year - can't quite remember where it is but thought that it might be somewhere near Glencoe. Judging by the position of the sun on the right hand side I would imagine that, if this was the case, they would be driving South West on their return journey from the North West Coast where they regularly toured in June or September.

I would appreciate any clues as to the location from anyone familiar with this area.

Try google streetview. A82 southbound, just south of River Coe crossing. Looks quite similar.

Thank you TBM. Will certainly give Streetview a go - I hadn't thought to use that.

Looks like Glencoe to me, heading towards Rannoch Moor.

A lovely photo and it does look like Glencoe but then so does a lot of the highlands

I think it might be from the top, travelling from Rannoch Moor towards Glencoe?

A very emotive image, the "god" rays adding greatly to the effect... Thanks for posting Rob. thumbs
