The following images were taken during our trip to Scotland and England in February 2001.

Memorial in Glencoe to the Massacre of the MacDonalds.
We didn't stay in the Ault Mhor B&B, but we did stay in another B&B across the street. The owners of these B&Bs are MacDonald sisters.
|The previous home which stood on this site was owned by a widowed MacNaughton lady.||B&B in the town of Glencoe owned by a family of McDonald's, but on the site where a McNaughton home previously stood.|
