Awesome day travelling through the Highlands!!! Tour guide Robert was amazing! Very charismatic, funny and knowledgeable about Scottish history. It’s a long day and a lot of it is spent in the coach, but it’s well worth it.

When to Get There

Each season in Glencoe brings its own majesty. Summers are best for hikers, with long days, mild weather, and carpets of purple heather. Spring brings bluebells and rhododendrons, autumn yields a palette of fiery rust, and winter is good for skiing. Summers are peak tourist season, but with so much space, Glencoe never feels overrun. That said, get there in early morning to avoid the midday rush.

Getting Active in Glencoe

Search for red squirrels, deer, and golden eagles; admire the rushing Glencoe Gorge Waterfall; tackle a Via Ferrata climbing route; or summit a Munro (a mountain over 3,000 feet/914 meters).
