Glencoe village and mountain resort is the dominant settlement in the Glen Coe, Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands. Located at the north-westerly rim of Glen Coe, the village lies on the bank of the River Coe at the point where the river flows into the salt-water Loch Leven.
The village as seen today is relatively modern, having been redeveloped as a mountain ski resort that is also popular with hikers and climbers all year round. The village does, however, occupy a historic site, as the Massacre of Glencoe took place here in the 1690s, when the MacDonald and Henderson clans where set upon by a group of men lead by a member of the Campbell clan.
The village today is considerably more peaceful, catering for individuals, families and group travel. Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Rannoch Moor, the village boasts amazing views of the Buachaille Etive Mor.
In summer, the area is perfect for mountain biking, archery and hill-walking, trail building and orienteering, climbing and photography not to mention landscape water colour painting and sketching. A log cabin café provides travellers with much needed refreshments after tackling the steep inclines and surviving the temperamental Scottish climate.
Winter activities include snowboarding and skiing as well as sledging, all of which are offered as courses. One can even learn how to rescue other people and oneself when an avalanche occurs. There are a total of 19 runs, including the longest and steepest runs found anywhere in Scotland and 7 ski lifts are available to snowboarders and skiers in the resort.
If an avalanche did happen to come along, your travel insurance might cover you, but this would very much be regarded as an “Act of God” and nobody could really be blamed on an avalanche that occurs naturally. The case would be different though, if somebody caused an avalanche deliberately by setting off an explosion that causes rocks and snow to bury skiers and snowboarders in the valley below.
Any accident victims caught in the resulting chaos would be able to claim compensation with the help of an accident solicitor Glencoe.
