Photograph of mountain ranges at Glencoe within a valley or 'Corrie' at Glencoe within the Scottish Highlands. Open moorland in the foreground leads to a valley situated in between mountains, the highest of which can be seen in the background.

Wilson produced a series of images of Glencoe that were similar to this view that were entitled 'Corrie-na-Baich, Glencoe'. This image was probably made during the autumn of 1860. This photograph is a later carbon copy which is a process that is less susceptible to light damage over time, unlike the original albumen photograph that was prone to fading over time.
