The route is long but the main sights are during the first 5 miles. Single track road but that shouldn't deter anyone from seeing this magnificent area.

Long and winding single track road to end of loch, but simply spectacular. We visited on a horrendous weather day and it was still magical.

If you already liked Glen Coe you'll love Glen Etive. Beware of the friendly deer standing on the road, mosquitoes and the James Bond wannabes on the road recreating the skyfall scene.
