Glencoe, a designated National Scenic Area sometimes referred to as the Glen of Weeping, was the scene of the infamous 'Massacre of Glencoe' in 1692. The Glen has a number of viewing stops on the road through the valley, and the National Trust for Scotland has a visitor centre along the main route.

The National Trust for Scotland cares for Glencoe National Nature Reserve, a 14,000 acre estate with 60 kilometres of footpaths for you to explore, marvel at the panoramic mountain views and spot internationally-renowned wildlife. Glencoe is a natural wonder, the remnants of a 'caldera' or super-volcano, formed many millions of years ago and later shaped by glaciers during numerous Ice Ages. Its history is a poignant one, most famed for the 'Massacre' of 1692 and more recently as a playground for pioneering mountaineers and climbers. Find out more or support the conservation work of Glencoe's Ranger team at the NTS Glencoe Visitor Centre at the western end of the Glen.
Stunning landscape rich in wildlife and natural beauty.History is also a major asset to this place although some of it is a wee bit dark.Some of the hills look like they deserve a lot of respect when venturing into them up high.

If you have a chance to visit Scotland, you should find time to drive up north to the high land in Glen Coe. Along the road side A82 before you get into the town of Glen Coe, you will find a land mark of the town ‘The Three Sisters’. You can park your car at the parking lot on the road side. The trail is just starting from there. You will find a small trail leading from the parking lot down to the mountain in front of you. Just walk to the left trail and follow the route. The trail is not too difficult but you need to prepare yourself such as a good hiking shoes , walking stick , drinking water , a jacket etc. it should take you around two to two and a half hour to get to the summit, but you don’t have to worry because you will enjoy the water fall view along the hiking trail. At the top, you will see the famous Lost Valley right in front of you. I love this trail because other than hiking, I also get a very good photo of the mountain and water fall.

In summer our chairlift provides access to spectacular panoramic viewpoints and a variety of exciting biking and walking trails, we also offer archery lessons and our log cabin cafe is open throughout the year serving home cooked food with a fantastic scenic view.
Drove over to Glencoe while on holiday nearby. Had a really hearty breakfast of rolls with bacon and potato scones at the café. We then had a ride on the chairlift and a climb up to the summit through the happy valley. Stopped to have a look in the haggis trap but sadly there wasn't any hiding that day! Really amazing views and the staff are great!

First time to Scotland, the road to our destination passed through Glencoe and the awesome Three Sisters mountains. We had to stop at the observation point for some photos. Absolutely stunning.
