The Lost Valley of Glencoe

By AndMyHeartSings...


The Lost Valley (Coire Gabhail), Glencoe. One of my favourite hikes for sure! Also known as the ‘Hidden Valley’, it’s nestled between two of the Three Sisters of Glencoe, part of the Bidean nam Bian range on the south side of Glencoe. This was where the Glen’s resident clan, Clan Macdonald, hid their cattle from potential rustlers (or indeed hid cattle they had rustled themselves!) When you are up here it makes you wonder how on earth they managed to get their cattle up here at all! It’s a rough walk but wildly dramatic and heavily rewarding! It’s also an amazing place to wild camp & a stepping stone to the mighty Munro peaks of Bidean nam Bian. Glencoe will always have my heart.
