Named for Glencoe, an eerie valley filled with forbidding mountains, thundering waterfalls and sparkling lochs. Glencoe has a fairytale beauty in the light of a summers day, but this place can become savage and dark when the weather turns, torrential rain and sinister winds sweeping down the valley. It was here on the morning of the 13th of February 1692, that Captain Robert Campbell of Glenlyon leading the Earl of Argyl’s Regiment of Foot, gave his fateful order. Having enjoyed the friendly hospitality of the inhabitants of Glencoe for the past two weeks, his men set upon their friends and distant relations and began the Massacre of Glencoe. In the modern day, times have changed, and even all are welcome in the local pub where a much loved uncle and cousin used to pour the drinks (though a Campbell might want to watch the barman pour their drinks!). When the sun is out, it is a most excellent place for a picnic.
The Glencoe picnic blanket has a water proof liner on the underside. It easily folds into a light and portable shape with handles that is easy to carry and store.
