Photograph of a view towards a high sided escarpment visible in the background, with a river in the foreground.

Glen Coe was formed during the Ice Age and is named after the River Coe which flows through it. George Washington Wilson took another photograph looking towards the same mountains that are in the background from further down the valley that features a waterfall in the foreground.
