Glencoe is a small village in the Highlands of Scotland. Its surrounding area is familiar to most of us, since the filming of ''Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Askaban'' and ''Skyfall'' has taken place there. Glencoe is situated in the heart of a glen, named Glen Coe too. Locals are able to offer to their visitors a wide range of facilities like hotels, restaurants and cafes. Glencoe is the perfect place for all who love adventure on the mountains.
