Escape to The Lost Valley

There’s a car park off the A82, facing the three sisters of Beinn Fhada. The walking route goes up Coire Gabhail.  Wonderful scenery throughout. Flowing water and waterfalls.  The place was also one of the escape routes used by the MacDonalds of Glencoe fleeing the infamous massacre in 1692 in which thirty-eight men, women and children perished. The path is mostly straightforward but involves crossing a burn, which is okay except when there’s been heavy rain with the stream is in spate and you can’t see the stepping-stones.  There’s also some scrambling over rocks involved.
