Glenoe

also known as Glennoe Glen Noe there is also an Gleno(e) in Co Antrim, Ireland.

This is the first of the deeply indented glens on the east side as you travel up the upper section of Glen Etive above Taynuilt.
Walking Glenoe - detailed description : https://www.electricscotland.com/webclans/m/macintyre/glennoewalk.htm

It was owned by the Duke of Argyll? or Campbell of Glenorchy, and then of Breadalbane, but from around 1400's the Clan MacIntyre moved to here from Skye. This became their homeland, and where descendants are drawn back to.
In 2008 the Clan organised a highly successful homecoming for the clan diaspora and this was repeated in July 2018. check out https://www.facebook.com/groups/macintyregathering/ their facebook group and the various clan Trust website and https://www.facebook.com/clan.macintyre.trust/ page for all the news.

Marching with Inverawe, and occupying the back part of Ben Cruachan, is the tenement of Glenoe and Dua, possessed by Messrs D. & J. Campbell, who are excellent managers of sheep. The stock is mixed of blackfaced sheep, and is very good.
Glenoe will summer about a score of cattle, but very few can be wintered. The rent is £350, and both it and the other tenements in Glen Etive, to be immediately mentioned, are on the Breadalbane estates.
