Kinlochleven POW Camps

Two Prisoner of War ‘work camps’ were established in the area, one on rugged land in the valley behind Kinlochleven and another - for conscientious objectors - at Caolasnacon on the banks of Loch Leven. Both are still recognised locations today. Prisoners from both sites built part of the road between Glencoe and Kinlochleven, thus opening up the village which had previously only been accessible by boat or on foot.
