Tour Scotland Video Winter Snow Before Christmas Glencoe Highlands



Tour Scotland travel video of Winter snow just two days before Christmas in Glencoe, on ancestry visit to the Highlands of Scotland. Early on the morning of 13 February 1692, in the aftermath of the Jacobite uprising of 1689 an incident known as the Massacre of Glencoe or Mort Ghlinne Comhann in Gaelic took place in Glen Coe in the Highlands of Scotland. Thirty eight men from Clan MacDonald of Glencoe were killed by government forces billeted with them on the grounds they had not been prompt in pledging allegiance to the new monarchs, William III and Mary II. Another forty women and children later died of exposure after their homes were burned. Movie sets for the third Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, were built near to the bottom of Clachaig Gully.
