Glen Coe is the most famous and perhaps most impressively dramatic of all Scottish glens, the perfect scenic match for its dark history of the massacre of the Macdonalds. For keen walkers, this is a true Mecca, epitomised by the famous pyramid of Buachaille Etive Mor, the guardian at the entrance to the glen. The highest peak is the great multi-summited massif of Bidean nam Bian whose three great buttresses rise impressively above the road and are known as the 'Three Sisters', whereas the north wall of the glen is the turreted and notorious ridge of the Aonach Eagach.
Just to the south is the much quieter and secluded Glen Etive, with its own ranges of impressive mountains. North and east of Glencoe is beautiful Loch Leven, with the town of Kinlochleven at its eastern end nestled beneath the great mountain range of the Mamores, with walks as exciting as in Glencoe itself.
