Inchewan Path near Dunkeld, Scotland

This was a wholesome walk on a lovely day with just a few soft showers thrown into the mix. For me, this area never fails to deliver in scenery and beauty and it is one of my favourite walks, as you may already know. Along the way, I have continued my experimentation with close-up photography and I ended up ‘accidentally’ finding many critters, when I was trying to photograph the plants. It just shows you how alive this place is.  

Softly one of the brightest features in the area! 💦🌿

Walking the Scottish Highlands | Glencoe | Coire Gabhail – The Hidden Valley

Walking the Scottish Highlands | Glencoe | The Hidden Valley – Coire Gabhail

Part 1 | Part 2

The Hidden Valley (“Coire Gabhail” in Gaelic, meaning “hollow of the spoils”) is somewhere that can only be reached by ascending a fairly steep and rocky path (or descending from the mountains surrounding it). It was used by members of Clan MacDonald to hide the cattle that they had stolen, for which they demanded ransom from the owners. Cattle raiding was a custom that stretched into prehistory, but was simply considered a nuisance by the 17th Century. Clan MacDonald often had feuds with Clan Campbell, which resulted in the Glencoe Massacre in 1692. The surviving members of Clan MacDonald took refuge in the Hidden Valley.
