A glen is a valley, typically one that is long, deep and often glacially U-shaped, or one with a watercourse running through it. Whittow defines it as a Scottish term for a deep valley in the Highlands that is narrower than a strath. The word is Goidelic in origin: gleann in Irish and Scottish Gaelic, glion in Manx. The designation glen also occurs often in place names.
