The Battle The location for the battle at Buachaille Etive Beag

The location used for the battle at the beginning of Highlander is near the mountain called Buachaille Etive Beag at the eastern end of Glen Coe.

Travelling down the glen from the west the first mountain you pass on your left is Buachaille Etive Mor. Surprisingly this is not the mountain which appears as a backdrop to the battle scenes, Instead it's lesser known neighbour Buachaille Etive Beag appears in Highlander. Just before you draw level with the mountain, it's appearance changes to the distinctive pyramidal shape it shares with it's larger neighbour.

At this point there is a car park on the left with a large yellow AA sign at one end of it and a signpost for a public footpath. Follow the public footpath (or more accurately at times a boggy quagmire) for a hundred yards or so towards the gap between the two mountains.
