The Sunday Times travel loves Glencoe

Mar 10th issue of The Sunday Times carried a great article about touring around West Scotland. They came to our area twice, once coming down Glencoe on the way to the North West, and coming back past our cottage. Loved it. Here is an extract of what they wrote.

".......desolate grandeur of Rannoch Moor, guarded at its Northern edge by Buchaille Etive mor.
The Buchaille marks the start of Glencoe, and if you are going to stretch the legs anywhere to-day, it has to be here, with Anoch Eagach - the finest ridge walk in Britain - on hand for the hard core and an excellent path up Coire Gabhail, the Hidden Valley...."

We are planning a new page on our Website which will cover all those places you can reach from Glencoe, by car within two hours. Look at this. If you base yourself here, then the whole of the West Scotland area can be reached, from Loch Lomond to the South, Mull and the Inner Islands to the West, to the South-west you have the ancient capital of the Scots, Dalriada, to the North you have Ben Nevis, Inverness, Loch Ness, to the North-West the Skye road bridge, to the North-east Aviemore, and to the West Ardnamurchan and Mallaig, to the East Gleneagles, and Stirling, and stretch the two hours by another half, you'll be in Edinburgh. (Go to Glasgow to watch Partick Thistle play, that's my advice, that's also within two hours.)
