Driving through the Pass of Brander you soon cross Loch Etive, heading northwards past Castle Stalker (made famous in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Here you will hear about the true story of James of the Glen and the Appin Murder, later featured in the novel Kidnapped by Robert Louis Stevenson.

There will be plenty of time to explore the excellent National Trust for Scotland Visitor Centre, which describes the natural history and geology of the area, as well as events leading up to the Glencoe Massacre.
