Blackrock Cottage

Blackrock Cottage - The Classic View
This is a famous spot on Rannoch Moor and gives a classic view of Buachaille Etive Mor with the cottage placed in the foreground.

The cottage is actively populated by walkers most weekends and I've never passed this spot without seeing parked cars next to it!

On this day in February there was a fresh coating of snow on Rannoch Moor and I opted to dedicate this frame to the cottage itself rather than include the classic background. I used a slightly longer focal length to frame the cottage (minus parked cars!) with the intention of including a portion of the Buachaille in the background to help convey the terrain, scale and ruggedness of the cottage's surrounding area.
