The Three Sisters

The sun breaks through the heavy cloud above Coire nan Lochan, a corrie of Bidean nam Bian on the southern side of Glen Coe.


The Three Sisters are the shoulders of Bidean nam Bian that overshadow the Glen itself. In years past the Corries of Glencoe (for example the mini valley seen between two of the shoulders) were used by the Clan Macdonald to hide their cattle from marauders. Interestingly, the cattle hidden was often stolen from other clans in the first place!


Behind the sisters seen in the image is Coire Gabhail which runs almost parallel to Glencoe itself. Coire Gabhail means Corrie of the Bounty, or The Hollow of Capture.


Today the Glen is easily accessible via the A82. There are a number of parking and viewing places where you can sit and look, or make your way down to the River Coe at the base of the Glen.
