Glencoe Lochan is a tract of forest located in one of the most idyllic settings, just north of the village of Glencoe.
This wood was created in the 19th century by Lord Strathcona to remind his Canadian wife of her homeland. The area around the lochan is often said to look like a miniature Lake Louise in British Columbia. The picturesque and serene lochan nestles in the centre of the wood surrounded by majestic, but wild and dramatic conifers and rugged mountains, and there are waymarked trails through the ornamental woodland at the foot of Glen Coe.
Turn off the A82(T) at Glencoe village. Pass through the village and over the River Coe bridge. The entrance to the woodland is signposted on your left a short distance later.
