Stunning valley, majestic mountains. Glencoe is one of the must see sights in Highlands. Perfect for hiking and even more for great pictures. A walk in the valley could take your breath! Be aware of the really strong winds and the changeable weather (even every five minutes).

Glencoe is all in all a wonderful place to visit, whether you're an experienced climber or just a lowly driver who doesn't ever venture out of his car! There is so much to do in Glencoe. From the Hidden Valley up to the heights of Bucheill Etive Mhor, (a mountain which looks over the south of Glencoe), there is ALWAYS... More

The drive up through the Glen Coe mountain range has to be the most spiritual experience of my life, awestruck by mother nature's beauty. Wondrous! Just go, experience it for yourself, everyone has to see this incredible place.

We only stopped for a wee moment, and certainly not enough time to absorb the work of mother nature's volcanic glens. Wouldn't it be awesome to hike the rugged terrain during the summer months? When I booked a tour of the Highlands, I skipped the itineraries that offered castles (a heart breaking dilemma). Instead, making Glen Coe my top Highlands'... More

Been here many times and visited again for the first time in about three years and it still takes my breathe away. If you're heading up the A82 you know you're in for a treat when you come off Rannoch Moor and see the imposing sight of Buachaille Etive Mor standing like a sentinel at the entrance of the Glen....

Glen Coe is a must stop when driving from Glasgow to Loch Ness, Isle of Skye or other famous places of Northern Scotland. If you're a mountain person, this place is for you. Enormous, pointed mountains, fresh air and the feeling that you're so small. Of course, especially in winter time, it can be cold and windy, so don't forget... More

Snow everyway you look -2 at least peaks covered by cloud, I know let's go up the ski lift and play in the deeper snow because we're English(from Surrey) still thoroughly recommend, snow angels, snow ball fight, falling over a lot! The guys who work the must think the tourists are a bunch of idiots (probably right 😃) And it's... More

Visited Glen Coe on my tour and I am profoundly changed by the memory of the beauty of this rugged terrain. As we drove through the light snow of the glens and high mountains then crested to see these beautiful sister and spiritual mountains I was speechless. One of the top places I've visited in my many years of travel.... More

Drove through on our way to lochness. It is just amazing views and if we had time we would have stopped for a bit more of an explore. Many photo opportunities and really shows the amazing landscape of Scotland. There are lots of pull ons and places to stop.

The real giveaway when travelling up to the Scottish highlands is passing Glen Coe. This heartwarming feature attracts many photographers for good reason, the surrounding landscape is simply breathtaking.
