Glencoe is a small village in the Highlands of Scotland. Located in the heart of a glen, its surrounding area is familiar to most of us, as the filming of ''Skyfall'' and ''Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Askaban'' took place there. Glencoe has many facilities available to its visitors and especially for those who would like to combine leisure with mountain activities.
