Glen Coe & Lochaber
There's lots of things to do in Glencoe for those looking for outdoor adventure or those exploring by car, on foot, or by bike.
Situated in the shadow of the Pap of Glencoe, overlooking Loch Leven, The Glencoe Gathering is warm, friendly and full of character. Traditional Scottish hospitality is complemented by the nature and adventure that awaits you outdoors.
Walkers follow the West Highland Way at the head of Glencoe, while shorter local trails highlight wildlife, waterfalls and woodland.
Over the years, Glencoe’s scenery has had a starring role in many famous films: Skyfall, Braveheart, Rob Roy, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Glencoe now plays its leading part on Scotland’s Movie Trail.
Active pursuits venture on to lochs, into hills, up Munros and down mountains. Bikers take on the rugged terrain throughout the year, while winter sports add skiing and snowboarding to seasonal snow at Glencoe Mountain Resort.
For those of you seeking a more relaxed break, there are wonderful places to eat and drink as well as a museum, gallery, garden and visitor centres to explore.
Directions to The Glencoe Inn & Gathering
The main road through Glencoe is the A82 which snakes its way through the mountain passes, glens and over moors as it connects the cities of Glasgow to the south and Inverness to the north. If you are travelling from the south follow the A82 then at the Tyndrum junction follow the road in the direction of Fort William continuing on the A82. Once you have driven through Glen Coe and into the village itself, pass the filling station on the left and The Glencoe Inn is a further 100 metres on left hand side. If you are coming from the north take the A82 south from Fort William, The Glencoe Inn is located on the right hand as you enter Glencoe Village. The closest train station is in Fort William.
