A spectacularly beautiful valley steeped in history.
Glencoe is without doubt one of the most beautiful locations in Scotland, which is quite a feat considering just how many impressive landscapes we have in our country! As we drive through the valley we are in fact driving straight through the heart of an ancient volcano, which goes some way to explaining why the area is just so impressive.
Being such an iconic location, it is perhaps unsurprising that it has been the backdrop to some major Hollywood films including: Braveheart; Skyfall; Harry Potter; as well as the Bollywood classic Kuch Kuch Hota Hai.
It is also famous for being home to one of the most treacherous events ever to occur in Scotland – the infamous Massacre of Glencoe. Its infamy lies not in the number dead, but rather in the way it was carried out, and your knowledgeable local guide will be sure to bring the story to life, warts and all.
We will drive all the way up the “Pass of Glencoe” to the start of Glen Etive, which is home to Buachaille Mor, one of Scotland’s most recognisable mountain peaks.
In addition to the time spent admiring the glen from the vehicle, we will have around 45 mins – 1 hour off the bus to enjoy the panoramic landscapes and take some stunning photos.
