I have been ambling up and down the hills and mountains of Scotland and the Alps since I was but a nipper. This is one of the most accessible, picturesque and satisfying mountains around. However, do not attempt to walk the main corrie route unless you know what you are doing. The navigation up to the lip of the corrie is easy, but it is committed, steep and dangerous for the last 50m or so.
We went to see the sunrise and sunset. We saw cloud, rain and sleet. It was august. Take good kit and enjoy. Then go and see Glen Etive.

one of the most recognisable mountains in Scotland and it is well worth the visit, even if you look at it from below like myself!

This is a magical mountain, one of the best climbs in Glencoe. Not for the faint hearted but what a view from the top.

One of the best hills in Scotland, this is well worth a visit even if you don't' do the full ridge. The main summit can usually be reached in just over two hours for the average walker and much less if you're very fit. The full ridge which is a worthwhile excursion is more of a full day, with a lengthy walk back to the car park. Can either be climbed from Altnafeadh at the entrance of Glen Coe or can easily be climbed from Glen Etive, which is usually a quieter route. The hill has many scrambles and rock climbing routes with lots to do for the outdoor enthusiast.
