What is the color of the mountains in Glencoe, Scotland in Mid-October?

Planning a trip to Glencoe, I am hoping to take some good pictures there. Can someone living in Glencoe or familiar with the area tell me what colors will I see in Mid-October. Is there much green color this time of the year? Any comments are greatly appreciated.

I just pulled out my photos from our October trip to Scotland. Some green grass still, but also a pretty burnt-orange color on the hills.

Thanks,sformby, for your response and the beautiful photo. I plan to spend 2 days in Glencoe just exploring the area. I just want to be sure that the mountains still look lively with contrasting green colors. Thanks!

I thought it was more beautiful in fall than the all green postcards they were selling!

We will be driving from Ayr to Glen Coe/Ballachulish on the 14th. This is helpful. Thanks!
