For such a small glen, Glenshesk is packed full of history, ancient and modern. It also has many famous people connected to it, some great myths and legends associated with it, as well as a great variety of ancient townland and field names which in many cases, give us a clue about our ancient history. This facinating landscape has shaped our history, and who we are today. Although some of this history is known by a few, this is the first time that it has been brought together on the one site.
