The resort is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty on Rannoch Moor and offers stunning views of the iconic Buachaille Etive Mor. The onsite campsite boasts a large camping area, hook-ups and microlodges. In summer the centre offers chairlift rides, mountain biking (Downhill and XC), tubing, hill-walking, climbing, photography and great home cooked food in the panoramic log cabin cafe. In winter skiing, snowboarding, sledging and avalanche rescue training are available and the resort has both the longest and the steepest ski run in Scotland.
Established in 1956 Glencoe is Scotland's oldest Ski centre and has a reputation as being a great venue for the more experienced skier. With stunning scenery and a great choice of runs including the famous 'flypaper' (The UK's steepest black run) Glencoe is a must visit destination for the more experienced skier and snowboarder.
However what few people know is that Glencoe also has a large plateau area which makes the perfect setting for those new to snow sports. Further improvements to the beginner's area have been made with a new 400m Dopplmayr Button Tow across the plateau and plans for a new 3 man chairlift are underway.
The resort is set among 200 hectares of fabulous scenery in the 'Meall a' Bhuiridh Massif' a large basin with outstanding snow holding characteristics which means skiing in late April and May is often possible.
There are 8 lifts, 20 runs, an avalanche transceiver training park, free sledging area (we provide the sledges), ski hire, ski school and 2 cafés with great home cooked food served on a daily basis.
In summer visitors can enjoy sightseeing trips on the chairlift, tubing, downhill and cross country mountain biking (hire available) and great home cooked food in the panoramic cafe.
Onsite accommodation is available all year round in the form of microlodges; the smaller ones sleep up to 4 people, and larger ones sleep up to 6 people. Camping and campervan hook-ups are also available and facilities include showers and drying rooms, available to all guests.
Glencoe is situated on the A82, 26 miles south of Fort William and 23 miles north of Crianlarich.
From the north, head down to Fort William and keep following the road south.
From the south, take the M74 to Glasgow and from here, follow signs for Dumbarton on the A82. Past Dumbarton, the A82 continues all the way to Glencoe. This very scenic route will take you along the shores of Loch Lomond as you head north to Crianlarich, Tyndrum and finally over Rannoch Moor, from where the ski centre is clearly sign posted.
Alternatively, if you are travelling from the east, there are several routes off the A9 which take you to Crianlarich and north. These include the A84 from Perth, the A85 from Stirling and the A827 from Balinluig.
