Glencoe

(Bridge of Coe)
Highland

Also known as Bridge of Coe, the small village of Glencoe lies at the western end of Glen Coe on the southern shore of Loch Leven, a mile (1.7 km) east of Ballachulish. The village benefits from a primary school, post office, police station, a mountain rescue post and the Glencoe and North Lorn Folk Museum, while nearby is a National Trust for Scotland visitor centre. Other tourist facilities include an outdoor centre, hotel and caravan site. The B-listed Glencoe House was built for Donald Alexander Smith, Lord Strathcona (1820 - 1914), one of the key figures in the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. This building served as a hospital from the Second World War until 2009.
