Can't believe I pass through Glencoe several times a year but have never stopped before. The loch an is truly beautiful but would imagine come the summer it will be rather busy. The basic walk round is an all abilities path so suitable for wheel chairs and push chairs. It really is worth taking a little time out to walk... More

A good place for a hike with a family. There are three trails you can take and they differ in difficulty. The easiest one one perfect for toddlers - walking or in carriers (or on scooters :). The landscape around the lochan is great, many spots for photo opps and plenty of space for kids to run around. In bad... More

We have been to Glencoe Lochan a number of times over the last ten years and it always gives this feeling of peace and tranquillity. The path around it is wheelchair friendly and the views are stunning in every direction.

By far one of the most beautiful places to go for a walk - take a flask of hot choc and sit and watch! Oh and don't forget your camera!

Every time we visit this area we always head for a 30 walk around this fantastic lochan. If you are lucky enough to be there on a sunny day or autumn day or both then I would suggest you cannot help but be impressed. The walk is flat apart from a slight incline from the car park. A hidden gem!

Good views of nearby Glencoe ranges and Loch Leven. As we walked back to the car we saw a Newly wed couple heading towards the Lochan still in full bridal wear, includin full... More

The Glencoe Lochan was on our itinerary tour. The setting is amazingly beautiful, I recommend sleeping over around this area to explore even more. Highly recommended!

We visited the Lochan whilst staying at magnificent Glencoe house, a short walk away. Walking round the Loch takes about an hour at a slow pace and offers some lovely views of Glencoe.

We heard about this lochan from our hosts, it is such a beautiful little place - a little Canada created for the North American wife of the owner to make it seem a little more like home. Sorted. A pleasant little walk - perfect after walking up Ben Nevis the previous day!!!

Our hosts recommended a walk by Glencoe Lochan, which we did before visiting Glencoe itself. It was a delight, if a bit small and is obviously used a lot for walking dogs. Being very sheltered, the reflections on the Lochan's surface were lovely and the walk ended too soon. It's worth a visit if in the area, but we wouldn't... More
