Glencoe

Glencoe
Glencoe is a Glen,situated in the Highlands of Scotland.
The narrow Glen shows a grim grandeur,
The Massacre of Glencoe occurred in Glen Coe, in the early morning of 13 February 1692, during the era of the Glorious Revolution and Jacobitism.
The massacre began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen—Invercoe, Inverrigan, and Achnacon—although the killing took place all over the glen as fleeing MacDonalds were pursued.
Thirty-eight MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by the guests who had accepted their hospitality, on the grounds that the MacDonalds had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new monarchs, William and Mary.
Another forty women and children died of exposure after their homes were burned.
It is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, and is a part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe.
