Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to Glencoe – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.

This property is part of the ‘We’re Good to Go’ scheme, which means we have carried out an official COVID-19 risk assessment to check we have everything in place to reopen safely.

Our visitor centre has had a major revamp with a new café, shop, exhibition, film screening area and information hub.

Our popular Land Rover safaris allow visitors of all abilities, including wheelchair users, to get a completely different view of the glen and its wildlife.

Please see our drop-down Facilities below for helpful information about planning your visit.

For more information about planning your visit please see our frequently asked questions.
