Glencoe


Misty mountains, lochs, battlegrounds...this is the Scotland that people think of. Welcome to Glencoe, one of the most beautiful parts of the country and an absolute must on any travel itinerary around Scotland. It is the scene of a famous battle, well not so much a battle as a massacre when the Campbells came in the night and routed the MacDonald clan. The MacDonalds bare a grudge to this day!

Are you on a tour of Scotland? Enjoy the photos - do you take them yourself or do you accept input from others?

Yes, I do think about this when I think about Scotland but in my images there's usually a monster.

Somehow Scotalnd in the mist is more mysterious and more beautiful.

The MacDonalds bear a grudge since the Campbells accepted their hospitality before slaughtering them. (and I'm neither a MacDonald or Campbell).
