The rugged beauty and atmosphere of this valley is ever changing, the light and weather dominates the dramatic mountains, particularly Buachaille Etive Mor. The area attracts visitors to experience the mood and history of this very interesting place, walkers, mountaineers, photographers and artists.

Stunning mountain, great to climb but not for the faint hearted. The view from the top is amazing. If you're re not a walker you can just admire it from afar. It welcomes you to Glencoe and doesn't disappoint. Worth a visit

Take the road to glen etive from the main Glencoe road. The buachaille mountain is on your right. Drive 100 yards and pull in to the small parking space, cross the road and walk 50 yards towards the buachaille mountain and you will see the...More

Hi there, we stayed at the Isle of Glen Coe hotel, just cross the road to the Village of Glen Coe and head left, it's near the little Co-Op, you will see the quarry and there are two walks you can choose from. Hope this... More
