Lang may yer lum reek! (Scottish for "May you live long and stay well.")

It may be time to brush up on your Scottish, because it is time to plan your trip to one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, Glen Coe. It is a part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. Named for the River Coe, which runs through it, its name is believed to predate the Gaelic language and its meaning is not known. In the Scottish Highlands, Glen Coe is considered among one of the most beautiful places in all of Europe. The glen got its namesake from its foggy, grim grandeur, but thankfully you'll probably only weep from the great views. Or running from the Loch Ness monster. Whichever.
