Things To Do In Glencoe
Signal Rock Glencoe is blessed with a location second to none for anyone who enjoys activities, wildlife or just setting back and taking it all in from the comfort of the sofa. Situated in the heart of Scotland’s most famous glen the cottages are surrounded by Torren woodland. This forest is cloaked in myth and legend since the time of the druids who would walk up Signal Rock to catch the rising and setting sun to being a vital point of communication during the Massacre of Glencoe in 1692.
In more recent times the glen has hosted some equally captivating stories and stars from the action of James Bond through to the magic of Harry Potter. Signal Rock Rock Cottage was in fact the base for the Warner Brothers production team during the 2003 The Prisoner of Azkaban filming. With such a magnificent location it is no wonder that these films and more are being shot in Glencoe on a regular basis, so you never know who you might bump into…

If you enjoy your holidays at a slower pace no place is better than Signal Rock. Situated amongst 100 year old conifers brought over from Canada, this woodland is truly special. The forest was planted by Lord Strathcona (born John Smith from Elgin in Morayshire) of the Canadian Pacific Railway fame who owned the Glencoe Estate in the early 1900s. Lord Strathcona also created Torren Lochan. This was a true labour of love; having married a Red Indian Squaw and wanted to recreate the environment from where she came so she would feel at home in Glencoe!
