The most famous Scottish glen is also one of its most dramatic, with forbidding mountains, thundering waterfalls and sparkling lochs.

The drama is also reflected in Glencoe’s history, both real and imagined – myths, massacre and movies are all now part of the fabric of this magical, mysterious place.

Walkers and climbers are drawn from all over the world to tackle its many mountaineering routes, including eight Munros, while animal-lovers come to catch a glimpse of Scottish wildlife including red deer, golden eagles and pine martens.

Before you explore, find out more about the landscape, history and wildlife at the award-winning Glencoe Visitor Centre.

Eight of the Trust's 46 Munros can be found at Glencoe & Dalness (What is a Munro?).

Please remember how dangerous and difficult conditions can be in Glencoe and other mountainous places. We urge anyone considering going climbing or walking at any time, but especially in wintertime, to pay a visit to the The Mountaineering Council of Scotland website where there are links to weather and avalanche reports.

You can also check in at the Glencoe Visitor Centre where the Glencoe Ranger Service issue copies of daily reports from the Scottish Avalanche Information Service.
