Glen Lyon, the longest enclosed glen in Scotland,34 miles in length. Some of Perthshire's finest scenes can be captured here. Once a populous community, there are now only a few folks still living in the Glen which becomes more uninhabited as it runs west towards Loch Lyon. The Glen is packed with history. It is infamous for having been the home of John Cambell of Glen Lyon - responsible for the Glen Coe massacre.
My favorite glen in Scotland! Over the journey it changes dramatically in character.

Be warned though, the road is not suitable for caravans or coaches!
