Northern Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 is incredible! And the Glencoe area is not to be missed. Awe inspiring beauty abounds! When it’s raining you can see 50-60 waterfalls in a 20 mile stretch. Must see!

Wasn't a very good weather when doing this walk, but the scenery was still lovely. There are a few trails available, relatively easy to walk. Nice little side trip to take!

Multiple, short trails around the lake with good views. Highly recommended if you have 2 hours to spare in Glencoe.

Lovely short and easy walk around a pleasant loch with some amazing views of the surrounding hills and valleys. The short red walk is easy for even the unseasoned walker and a great way to explore the local area.

Did an early morning walk on a clear day. Pleasant scenery, but nothing dramatic. Lake is small, tranquil & has the occasional duck swimming in it. Doable even on a rainy day.

We did 2 of the 3 walks and on the first one a young stag was just eating at the side of the path, totally unafraid. The setting is idyllic and the walks are beautiful. It's not a hike but very very pleasant with 3...More
