Rannoch Moor near Glencoe

As the Esca and Marcus move northward, they pass over the Rannoch Moor. Situated over 1,000 feet up, this section of the Rannoch Moor is famous for its lochans (or lakes). Overall the Rannoch Moor is about 50 square miles of boggy moorland. Now Rannoch Moor is a designated Heritage Site as well as site of “special scientific interest”. For centuries, however, Rannoch Moor lived on in popular imagination as mysterious and dangerous landscape, an area Robert Louis Stevenson described in his novel Kidnapped as being "as waste as the sea."
