Glen Finglas

Sense the Past, Enjoy the Present, Ensure the Future

Portrait of Sir Walter Scott by Sir Henry Raeburn

A show er of blood, a mangled arm, a decapitated head. Blood, mutilation, beheading. It’s gory. It’s gruesome. It sounds like the opening scene from a novel by Val McDermid. But not a bit of it. Eat your heart out, Tartan Noir, for this profusion of horrors came from the pen of none other than Sir Walter Scott! He was way ahead of you

Scott wrote his grisly poem Glenfinlas (Glen Finglas) more than two hundred years ago in 1803, and instead of his readers recoiling in disgust, they thirsted for more and headed in droves to this beautiful Scottish glen. There’s definitely no accounting for taste

While his poem might be pure fiction, the glen has certainly seen plenty of excitement over the centuries, with medieval hunting parties, whisky-smugglers, cattle rustlers, clearances, scandalous artists and writers, dam-builders and flooded settlements to name but a few. And it’s a story that continues today
