April 2016 Newsletter

June 12, 2016

The April 2016 newsletter has been sent out to members.

In addition to some recent local events, the newsletter also concludes the historical notes on the Battle of Killiecrankie, on the 16th July, 1689

The article then continues to relate of the interesting events around this incident, and is taken from the book The Clan Ranald of Knoydart and Glengarry - A History of the MacDonalds or McDonells of Glengarry, by Norman H.MacDonald. Note This book is now out of print.

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.
