Glen Strae

Glen Strae is the glen of the River Strae, withich rises in countless burns on the slopes of Beinn a' Chuirn. Where the streams from the north and from the east meet are a gathering of shielings – shepherd’s summer-pasture lodges, and from here the river enters its glen and runs southwest in alomost a straight line to the head of Loch Awe.

Glen Strae is for much of its way a bleak, a deep cut amongst mountains and a treeless glen, steep-sided and beset on the north side by crags. A little wood softens it in the south, and the river here flows between pine trees and over a waterfall before emerging again onto the open moor.
