By night, the Glencoe cottage twinkles; a solitary star amidst a galaxy of nature. By day, it marks the source of an epic adventure.
Not far from the front door is the Devil’s Staircase: an historic, 9km route connecting the town of Altnafeadh to Kinlochleven. Wildly anticipated along the West Highlands Way, this steep path is believed to have acquired its name from the lethal journey made by local workers after spending their day’s wages at the pub.
Although geologically significant, Glencoe is also famed for its tragic history. Refusing to pledge allegiance to the new monarchy of 1692, 30 members of Clan MacDonald were slaughtered, resulting in the Massacre of Glencoe. Gaelic for ‘glen of weeping’, some believe this is how the area got its name.
This bright and crisp colour combination would work well for children’s interior design. Fun and uplifting, honeyed yellows such as amber encourage a feeling of joy.
When thinking of the colour yellow, one can instinctively relate to the colour of the sun, memorising the warmth and life that comes with it as the season ebbs away. The tonal browns and burnished oranges contrast playfully with the blue.
