This valley, is full of wonders at every turn. Peaks, waterfalls, rivers, rocks, etc. Stark reminders all around, of the reasons that the Scots retreated to the highlands to avoid conflicts with the Anglos, Danes, and the English. A real highlight.

This spot evokes the sadness of Scotland--the Campbell massacre--the songs, feel the historical pain of Scotland. Beautiful scenery and history shouting at you. Possibly the most insightful historical site in Briton.

Also known as the Coe valley (glen means valley), we did a bit on the three sisters site and walked along the path for 30 minutes or so before hopping back onto the bus. Another 10 minutes drive we reach the area where the massacre of glencoe happened (between the Campbell's and the Macdonald's. beautiful landscape along the way. This... More

This is a must-do in the Highlands, not to say you've been there ..... like Loch Ness... but because it really is that great! My wife and I did the walk to Signal Rock, which was fairly easy and took 30 mins. Then we headed up the Devil's Staircase, which I highly recommend! This was more difficult and included ascending...

A wonderfully sombre and spectacular drive through Glencoe is a must for all travellers. Historically sad when you think about the Massacre in this great scenery.

This is a beautiful area that is hard to describe and pictures will never truly represent what you are seeing. I particularly loved the scene from the Three Sisters Car Park. It is so peaceful and beautiful that I did not want to leave.

Been here several times and still the most beautiful place of all Scotland. The mountains, the scenery, walking the lost valley, go up Glencoe ski Resort, it's amazing. Can sit on the Mountain top for hours and make pictures

A must see if you are visiting the Highlands, we went on a bus tour (timberbush tours) we stopped here and took some amazing pictures, the rain didn't bother us. Just incredible... I will definitely be going back again!
