Glencoe: The Glen of Weeping
Much of Scotland's early recorded history is full of violence but the massacre of the MacIans (a sept of the clan Donald) in Glen Coe in 1692 still arouses the strongest passions to this day. 38 clansmen were murdered by government troops on orders approved by King William in London in an attempt at what today would be called "ethnic cleansing."
Moira also has close ties with Glencoe - her partner Hamish MacInnes was a founder member of the Mountain Rescue Team there.
