Glencoe offers some of the finest landscape in Scotland, indeed the whole of the UK, where dramatic mountains sweep down to glens (valleys) until they meet the moody waters of the lochs.  

While this is a site of historical significance due to the Glencoe Massacre of 1692, the primary draw is the magnificent natural surrounds. There are numerous well-marked walks in the area and it is also popular with rock-climbers. This is one of Britain’s premier ski areas in winter, but a chairlift operates year round to offer the best views of the area.

Practical Info

Glencoe is one of the most popular destinations within reach of the string of lochs (including Loch Ness) which cut across northern Scotland. It is situated on the A82 highway, which runs from Glasgow to Inverness, taking in Loch Lomond and other scenic highlights.
