Glencoe or Glencoe Village is the main settlement in Glen Coe in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands. It lies at the north-west end of the glen, on the southern bank of the River Coe where it enters Loch Leven .The village falls within the Ross, Skye and Lochaber part of the Highland council area for local government purposes. It is part of the registration county of Argyll and the lieutenancy area of Inverness for ceremonial functions.The use of the term 'Glencoe Village' is a modern one, to differentiate the settlement from the glen itself.HistoryThe village is on the site of the Massacre of Glencoe in 1692, in which 38 members of the Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by forces acting on behalf of the government of King William III following the Glorious Revolution.The village occupies an area of the glen known as Carnoch. Native Gaelic speakers who belong to the area always refer to the village as A'Charnaich, meaning "the place of cairns". Even today there is Upper Carnoch and Lower Carnoch. A small hospital - currently empty - with emergency services at Fort William 16 miles away, lies at the southern end of the village just over an arched stone bridge. Use our United Kingdom day trip app to arrange your visit to Glencoe and any other destinations in United Kingdom that take your fancy.

Where to stay in Glencoe

You'll find some of the best accommodations in Glencoe area southeast of the town, where you can choose from several inns, hostels, and a campground. For equally memorable views but better proximity to Glencoe itself, consider staying along the shores of Loch Leven in a bed and breakfast or a boutique hotel. Most accommodations in the town itself sit just off the main highway.
