It was a challenging but beautiful hike. The scenery was amazing and the view from the top was spectacular. You have to be in reasonably good shape to do it. But, it is definitely worth your time.

There's a reason movies are shot in Glencoe. It's beautiful. I would have loved to have suspended time and just stayed for a spell. This climb will either shame you about neglecting the gym (me) or make you so glad you're in shape (hopefully you)....More

On your way down Glen Coe you will see lots of cars parked at a particular spot (look out for the Devil's staircase sign). This is where the famous West Highland Way comes down along the Glen and then climbs up over the Devil's staircase...More

This hike is well worth the uphill walk. The views at the top are amazing. We met several hikers who were friendly and shared ideas about additional hikes. Taking the side trail off the top adds scenic views, but the trail becomes very boggy. Our...More

Easy hike providing beautiful views of the Glencoe valley and surrounding areas. At the top you get a great 180 degree view of the other side as well

Worth the climb to get the views across Glencoe and the Mamores, in summer there's even a little stall selling drinks at the top.

Glencoe is a magical place in Scotland, which deserves its reputation as a must-see area. The scenery typifies what most people think of when they imagine the Highlands. We drove northwards from Oban through the valley, stopping at the visitor center and then at various...More
