Glencoe

Towns & Villages

    Magical Glencoe combines world-famous scenery with history and is one of the highlights of any trip to Scotland.

    The wonderful world of Glencoe, located by the ‘Outdoor Capital of the UK’, Fort William, is situated on the main route north through the Highlands and is just a short drive (about two hours) from central Scotland. The region boasts a great collection of high mountain peaks, ridges, rushing rivers and waterfalls which altogether create a magical and mystical land that offers a unique range of activities and plenty of space to roam free.

    The area is a paradise for walkers and climbers in all seasons, and skiers and snowboarders in the winter. Visitors can also hire mountain bikes and hurtle downhill on the many purpose-built bike tracks, in addition there's sailing, white water or sea kayaking, fishing, canyoning, golf, archery, climbing or simply walking the miles of mountain and forestry tracks.

    The best approach is from the south on one of the major routes through the Highlands. The road climbs over the bleak expanse of Rannoch Moor and drops down between the steep sides of Glencoe. Amazing mountains such as Buachaille Etive Mor and the Three Sisters loom on either side, with river scenery at the bottom of the glen.
