Not the easiest to find but well worth the effort, brings home a little more of Scottish history and the troubled past of the area.

We stayed at Glencoe House which was very close to the monument. Had to visit given we are MacDonald’s and my husband resided in the Highlands in his early childhood. Fitting memorial and well done to those who continue to maintain it.

A simply stunning backdrop to a shocking piece of Scottish history. The stunning surroundings are the real star and worth a visit regardless.
