Lost Valley, Glencoe

October 3, 2015

In June 2015, a recent challenging, and interesting, climb up to the lost valley in Glencoe, on a brilliant blue sky day, resulted in a remarkable view of this beautiful valley

Coire Gabhail is known the hidden valley, where the MacDonalds (McIans) of Glen Coe hid their rustled cattle. A visit involves a very rough but intensely dramatic and scenic climb.
