Spectacular Glencoe (15 miles south) is one of the highlights of any trip to Scotland. Awesome mountains such as Buachaille Etive Mor and the Three Sisters loom on either side, with dreamlike scenery at the bottom of the glen. The area is a paradise for walkers and climbers in all seasons, and skiers and snowboarders in the winter. Filming for the third Harry Potter film, “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, took place in and around Glencoe. The Visitor Centre affords the best views of the great glen and shows visitors how it was formed through an interactive display.
