Glen Coe

Probably the most recognisable area of the Scottish Highlands is the scenic valleys and hills of Glen Coe.

I love how eerie Glen Coe looks in the winter time. I suppose it’s fitting given that there was once a massacre here.

Glen Coe was the traditional homeland of the Clan MacDonald. In 1692, they were massacred by the Campbells who had been their guests.

Even with its turbulent past, Glen Coe remains one of the most beautiful areas of the Scottish Highlands.
