So much to see & do

your options are limitless!

Glen Coe is probably Scotland’s most famous and most scenic Highland glen – and deservedly so. Located within the Outdoor Capital of the UK, Glencoe is world renown as a centre for mountaineering and hillwalking, but it is also the ideal location in which to relax or to use as a convenient base to tour the western highlands of Scotland.

Visitors from all over the world flock here year after year, inspired by the sheer scale and grandeur of its surrounding mountains and fascinated by the intrigue of its turbulent past. Nowhere else in the UK will you find such a collection of mountains, lochs and rivers that offer a unique range of activities, stunning scenery and plenty of space to roam free.

Glencoe has much to offer the visitor, both in summer and in winter, and is indeed a glen for all seasons.


Glencoe is blessed with some of Britain’s finest high level mountain walking country. The routes and opportunities for adventure are endless. There is also a challenging indoor wall and ice climbing facility at the Ice Factor if the weather is not on your side.

For those who want to take things a bit easier there are plenty of less strenuous walks straight from the door.

Adventure Activities

Glencoe is famous for its mountains but there’s plenty of other ways to get your thrills!

For the more sedate there is fun to be had on segways or even paddle boarding. For the more adventurous why not try some canyoning or white water rafting.


There are great cycle rides available to suit all ages and all levels of ability.  From Easy flat cycling following Sustrans cycle routes, Quiet road routes with very little traffic, simple off road riding on well made tracks to the hardest of downhill mountain bike routes.

Snow Sports

Scotland’s longest established ski area is just down the road at Glencoe Mountain Resort, and on a good day still provides skiing/snowboarding off a quality unrivalled across the rest of the Scottish ski resorts. The resort has both the longest and the steepest ski run in Scotland!

There are plenty more things to see & do

fishing, golfing, photography, wildlife spotting, beaches to explore…
