Glen Coe

International > Europe > United Kingdom > Scotland


Glen Coe is one of the most spectacular glens in Scotland. It is also very easy to get to since a main road drives right down the middle of it.

Both sides of the glen are spectacular for hikers and climbers, although the southern flanks boast most of the climbing. Classic climbs ranging from 5.2 to 5.13, are all situated within a spectacular mountain arena steeped in Scottish history.

Getting There

From Glasgow head north on the A82. From Edinburgh head towards Stirling on the A904, and then the A84 towards Crianlarich to join the A82. From there follow the road until you swing westwards and enter the magnificent Glen Coe.
