A mo­ment of au­tum­nal calm set­tles over Loch Etive, a sea loch that brings the ocean over 17 tor­tu­ous miles (28km) deep into main­land Scot­land. There are al­most no roads along­side the loch; it has al­ways been eas­ier to use the wa­ter it­self as a high­way rather than the moun­tain­ous land that en­velops it. Thus, much of the loch is un­vis­ited – save for ad­ven­tur­ous seals – though cruises are avail­able from the mouth of the loch. Golden and white-tailed ea­gles live rel­a­tively undis­turbed here.
