We came to see this amazing spot, it sums up Scotland perfectly. This shows the Highlands in one Glen.

Stunning dramatic scenery. Climbed this with my husband and our friend, did the 2 Munros including curved ridge.. 8 hr hike. For prepared hikers with proper equipment.

I would never imagine wild swimming at warm temperatures in the Scottish mountains but there we were. Beautiful setting and many swimming pools. Even though we were in the middle of the heatwave and there were quite a few cars parked around, we found a...More

The rugged beauty and atmosphere of this valley is ever changing, the light and weather dominates the dramatic mountains, particularly Buachaille Etive Mor. The area attracts visitors to experience the mood and history of this very interesting place, walkers, mountaineers, photographers and artists.

Probably the archetypal Scottish mountain. A tough walk by most routes but Curved Ridge is the classic introduction to the Munro.

It's a bit of a scramble in places, we met a few people on the way down who'd turned back before they reached the top, so be prepared to use your hands. Walking poles recommended. When we went there was snow up at the top...More

Stunning mountain, great to climb but not for the faint hearted. The view from the top is amazing. If you're re not a walker you can just admire it from afar. It welcomes you to Glencoe and doesn't disappoint. Worth a visit

This area of Scotland is so beautiful! The serenity of this beautiful landscape is contagious and you can't help but take it all in. The "one lane" road could be a little intimidating at first, but traffic there is really not that busy and whenever...More

Hi there, we stayed at the Isle of Glen Coe hotel, just cross the road to the Village of Glen Coe and head left, it's near the little Co-Op, you will see the quarry and there are two walks you can choose from. Hope this... More
