Description

Glencoe is one of Scotland's most beautiful places and you can find out about its history, landscape and wildlife in the Trust's visitor centre.

The peaks of Glencoe stand as a monument to one of the most tragic events in Scotland's history - the infamous massacre that took place here on a snow-driven February night in 1692.

The site offers a dramatic backdrop for some of the finest climbing and walking in the country. Red deer, wildcat, golden eagle and rare arctic alpine plants can be found among the breathtaking peaks and spectacular waterfalls in the glen. An easy walk is to Signal Rock, by tradition the gathering point for the MacDonalds of Glencoe at times of emergency.

The cottage has been aptly named as the Gulf Steam touches this corner of Scotland making the climate very temperate and if you find this hard to believe then visit Logan Botanic Gardens where plants from the South Seas flourish. The garden to Palm Tree Cottage has a palm tree reputed to be over 50 years old and viewed from the terrace the garden really does look tropical. There is an enticing view to the sea over the charming roof tops of this fishing village dating back historically some 500 years.
