Tour Scotland Video Drive West And East Through Glencoe Highlands
Tour Scotland video of a drive West and back again East on the A82 road through Glencoe, on ancestry visit to the Highlands of Scotland. This famous Scottish Glen was the site the of the famous Massacre of Glencoe which began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen at Invercoe, Inverrigan, and Achnacon, although the killing took place all over the glen as fleeing MacDonalds were pursued. 38 MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by Campbell guests who had accepted their hospitality. This Highland location featured a lot in Skyfall the James Bond movie, mainly because it is the most famous Scottish glen and one of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. Harry Potter fans will know Glencoe too. In the third film in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, the scenes featuring Hagrid’s hut were filmed on location in the glen. Scenes in the sixth instalment, The Half Blood Prince were also filmed here. Highlander was also filmed in Glencoe.
