Legends of Glen Coe & The Highlands

Scotland is the perfect place to discover. The scenic Braveheart country has thousands of lochs, misty hills and mountains, a famous sea monster and enough clan stories to keep you entertained for weeks.

Glen Coe, The Scottish Highlands

There must be lots of places you want to see in Scotland, and a visit Glencoe & The Highlands is a definite must.

Glencoe is part of the Scottish Highlands and it’s famous for two things. One; it’s extremely beautiful (the most stunning place on mainland Scotland). And two; it was the place of the infamous gruesome Glencoe massacre where 38 men, women and children from the MacDonald clan were murdered in their sleep by their guests.

Oddly enough, it was nothing special by Highland standard. The problem with the massacre at Glencoe is that it was a breach of clan etiquette. While it was considered acceptable to butcher hundreds of defenseless men and children, you weren’t allowed to be sneaky about it.


The story is tragic and it has been told since 1692 when the massacre happened. But it’s just one of many bloody clan fights that has taken place in the Scottish Highlands.


It really is a beautiful part of Scotland and perhaps the prettiest place of all.
