Visit Glencoe Scotland

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

This afternoon, I am presenting an image taken at a just-completed tour of Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands.

Glencoe is a 'must see' on a Scotland Tour. The scenery is awesome and there is added dimension in that Glencoe was the location of a famous massacre in 1692 when a detachment of Campbells serving in the British Army massacred 38 members of the Maclan MacDonalds on Feb 13th 1692.

There is a good Visitor Centre operated by the National Trust which focuses on the local ecology and scenery.



Glencoe also has a heritage museum and is very popular with hikers and climbers.
