It looks tough and it was. Check avalanche conditions if there is any snow about. Views from the top were amazing. Well worth the effort. Highly recommend!

The gatekeeper to Glencoe and Glen Etive. It's a Scottish icon. Good walking and good climbing....and excellent photographic opportunities.

A magnificent mountain that starts a fabulous drive down the Glen Etive. This mountain is not only spectacular but was made famous in the James Bond Film, Skyfall. Truly a must when in Scotland.

A beautiful drive....even in the rain! If you like waterfalls this is for you. Didn't go to the end of the road as we were pushed for time but I believe there is a loch there. Single track road with passing places.

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
