View of Glencoe in the Highlands of Scotland. Mountains such as Etive Mor and Sgor na Ciche dominate the landscape in Glencoe creating a dramatic and melancholy atmosphere and it is sometimes said that a translation of Glencoe means ‘Glen of Weeping’. Dickens even wrote the following lines about the valley, “Glencoe itself it perfectly terrible. The pass is an awful place… there are scores of glens, high up, which form such haunts as you might imagine yourself wandering in, in very height and madness of a fever… the very recollection makes me shudder”.
