“Gorgeous hike!”

Glencoe Mountain Resort
Reviewed 18 August 2014

First of all, make sure to have some good shoes on you. Sandals are not the best choice even on a summer day, the hill is soaked with peaty water. Skidding wasn't that much of a problem, but suddenly sinking into what seemed like a solid ground did surprise every one of us at least once.

The hike started along a mountain bike trail, which was shockingly steep and bumpy - we laughed that if we were to bike down that one, we'd get off of the bikes and walk instead. As we reached a reasonable road on top and approached the end of the ski lift, we discovered that there is another hill on top of the one we just climbed! So we went on and didn't give up until we reached the permafrost. We never made it to the summit (it was getting into some serious rock climbing and one of us was... ehm... wearing sandals... with socks in!), but we saw some breathtaking views and drank water from the stream that tasted just like pure molten snow.

If you're not trained, be ready that your legs will be sore from the descent.

Yes also in the summertime you can take the chair lift up the mountain or go by foot. Also a good place for mountain bikes they have some track to go down looks perfect.

We had just missed the skiing by 2 days but that was never on the agenda, we walked and talked and the scenary was great, the chair ride up the mountain is fun and offers good views around and about, the tea rooms serve a purpose with warms drinks and simple food and drinks

We spent a lovely week in Scotland and decided to go skiing. I had my own skis but my partner and friends waited over an hour and half for equipment. Got charged an extra £5 as it was the school holidays as well. Staff said the manager was in Glasgow and just gave this mobile number out. Extremely rude staff especially cafe which ran out of drinks and the one lift guy who refused to help my friends little boy off the lift. Will never ski here ever again.
