In Gaelic, the word ‘strath’ means a ‘broad valley’. In the case of Strathglass the ‘strath’ takes in three scenic glens – Glen Strathfarrar, Glen Affric and Glen Cannich. They offer a unique combination of mountain scenery, ancient Caledonian forests, rivers and impressive waterfalls. In particular, Glen Affric has earned a reputation as one of the most beautiful wilderness areas of Scotland and it is now a national nature reserve.
