A bit of history about our secluded Highland Estate near Fort William…
History of the Glen
The Glen has a rich pre, early, and modern natural and social history. It has been visited, lived in, and owned by influential political figures and families such as King Malcolm IV, the MacGilliechattans, the MacKintosh, and Clan Cameron of Loch Eil, as well as a famous Shakespearean called Banquo. The Glen has also witnessed some bloody Scottish battles such as the Jacobite Rebellion.
