The only downside to our trip was the wait to get up to the car park, but with freshly fallen snow I suppose card getting stuck couldn't be helped! A lovely wee ski area with different levels of runs ! Excellent if there's a wee bit of fresh! Outstounding views! 😃

This was the first skiing area to open in Scotland and it shows. There is none of the dignity of established resorts in Europe just a general shabbiness that seems to pervade most of the buildings and equipment. A saving grace was the food at the bottom station cafe, very tasty and a killer hot chocolate. Prices were reasonable when... More

Glencoe has fantastic scenery and looks great, especially from the very top but also from the rest of the ski area. We visited on 29 Dec 2014, the place did not seem especially busy, the queue in front of us did not seem particularly long. But we queued for 2.75 hours before getting skis (standing outside in the queue, temperature... More

We took our first ski lesson here and really enjoyed it. The hire equipment was in good condition, the instructor was patient and helpful and we felt to make really good progress. The mountain has many different pistes to cater for all standards. Work commitments have kept us away this year but come the snow we'll definitely be back for... More

Incredible scenery and amazing skiing to be had. When you leave glasgow you wouldn't believe you could be skiing in an hour and a half. Can't wait for the new season, as soon as the slopes open I'll be back.

We took the chair lift up Glen Coe. It was absolutely freezing despite being the end of August, probably due to the winds. There is not much at the top, except to be awe-inspired by the view, so we only stayed up for about 10 minutes before coming back down. Although it was beautiful, we enjoyed the ride up the... More

I wouldn't say it was worth £10 each but the views on the way up and when you get up are amazing. We were camping in Glencoe so got the bus to here (Beware if you get the bus, they may be full and leave you waiting a couple hours for the next one). It's very pricey in the restaurant... More

We were driving through Glen Coe along highway A82 and stopped at the Glencoe Mountain Ski lift for a ride. Twenty pounds was a bit steep for the two of us to ride to the top and back but the views were great.
