Glencoe (Gleann Comhan in Gaelic) is a glen (valley) located in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands, part of the National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glencoe. It is owned and administered by The National Trust for Scotland who run a visitor centre with an exhibition presenting natural and social history of the area (charge applies, 6 GBP at 2012 prices). The glen is 16km long and it’s entered to the west from Rannoch Moor, heralded from afar by the characteristic shape of Buachaille Etive Mor, marking the beginning of both Glencoe and the neighbouring Glen Etive. On the southern side of the glen there are also Buachaille Etive Beag, Three Sisters, and Bidean nam Bian. On the north side of the glen is the Aonach Eagach ridge. Glencoe offers a variety of walks as well as serious climbing to hikers of all abilities. There is also a ski centre nearby. Glencoe has been voted one of the seven wonders of Scotland by the readers of the Scotsman newspaper and it combines natural and historical attraction. The latter is associated with the Massacre of Glencoe of 1692, when the Jacobite Clan MacDonald of Glencoe was decimated by the Campbells loyal to William and Mary.
