Our Scottish sojourn took us to Glencoe, a village in the western Scottish Highlands. that lies in the steep-sided Glencoe valley. The area is best known for waterfalls and the trails that climb to the peaks of Buachaille Etive Mor and Bidean nam Bian. The area is also known for the Glencoe massacre of 1692 when 30 members of Clan MacDonald were killed by British forces, allegedly for failing to pledge allegiance to the new monarchs, William III of Scotland and Mary II. Unfortunately our time in Glencoe was extremely wet preventing us from hiking to any of the waterfalls. Even in rain it was a simply stunning wild area.
