Going up through the gorge is brilliant! A bit tough on the legs at times, especially if you have a heavy bag on, but it's well worth the night's camp. On the way up the views are unreal with such clear waters.

A one night camp up the hidden valley in Glencoe will be an experience you may want to repeat, as I have done many times. So you will get picked up from Stirling train station at 9.30am, we will head towards Glencoe, stopping now and then to stretch the legs, toilet breaks etc. We will stop at Tyndrum to get something to eat from The Real Food Cafe. After getting fed we will head straight through to Glencoe. After parking up we head up towards the hidden valley, this will need a head for heights as there are some very narrow paths and steep drops, as well as some scrambling, so this can be a bit tricky if you don't like heights. It should be noted that this is a dangerous walk, there have been accidents and even fatalities going in and out of the valley so extreme care and observation must be taken. Going up through the gorge is brilliant! A bit tough on the legs at times, especially if you have a heavy bag on, but it's well worth the night's camp. On the way up the views are unreal with such clear waters. As you climb you're greeted with the mooing and cooing from the deer most the night, okay you may not get much sleep, but I doubt you will complain about that. Getting up the valley before dark settles in is a must! Once up through the stunning gorge and with the tents set up, a little shelter or two for us to sit in, just to keep us out of any wind. As you enjoy the surroundings, maybe have a wander, I will get some homemade soup on and we can enjoy the night around a little fire afterwards. When up in the valley, even at the bottom of the valley, there's no signal at all, this is the only problem.
