Glencoe Valley is considered the gateway to the Highlands and is not only one of most beautiful places in Scotland, it is also one of the most tragic. In the history of Scotland, the name Glencoe is inevitably associated with the massacre in 1692, when one clan betrayed the other and abused the right to hospitality which is to this day considered sacred in Scotland... Approaching Glencoe from the South, one crosses a high plateau until finally the A82 ascends the rugged mountains on both sides... This is where SIMON STOCK took the wonderful photo 'Glencoe Aerial', which just received an award at the PDN Photo Annual.
