To visitors to the Highlands the name Glencoe is synonymous with the very best of Scottish scenery and the worst of the atrocities committed against the Highland clans. This half day tour will take you to the heart of this spectacular valley, travelling along the Great Glen and passing the Ballachuilish slate quarry along the way.
You will hear the story of the dreadful massacre of 1692, learn about James of the Glens and possibly the greatest miscarriage of justice in Highland history, and listen to the story of the mythical Celtic bard Ossian and his role in one of the greatest literary hoaxes of all time.
But mostly, Glencoe is about the dramatic scenery. Formed by volcanoes over 300 million years ago then sculpted by ice for the last 2 million, Glencoe is Scotlands best known and most visited landscape. Join this trip for an unforgettable experience on your Highland journey.
