Christmay Day Glencoe Scottish Highlands Of Scotland [02:01]
Tour Scotland video shot on Christmas Day in Glencoe on visit to the Scottish Highlands. This Scottish glen is considered to be one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland. The name Glen Coe is often said to mean Glen of Weeping, perhaps with some reference to the infamous Massacre of Glencoe which took place there in 1692. In fact the Glen is named after the River Coe which runs through it, and bore this name long before the 1692 incident. Glen Coe was originally part of the lands of Clan Donald, though since the ending of the clan structure they progressively sold off their estates. Early in the morning of the 13th of February, 1692, in the aftermath of the Glorious Revolution and the Jacobite uprising of 1689 led by John Graham of Claverhouse, a massacre took place in Glen Coe, in the Highlands of Scotland. This incident is referred to as the Massacre of Glencoe which began simultaneously in three settlements along the glen, Invercoe, Inverrigan, and Achnacon, although the killing took place all over the glen as fleeing MacDonalds were pursued. Thirty-eight MacDonalds from the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by the guests from the Campbell Clan who had accepted their hospitality. They were killed on the grounds that the MacDonalds had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new monarchs, William and Mary. Another forty women and children died of exposure after their homes were burned.
