Low Level Walking


Glencoe is famous for it’s mountaineering, but we do have a couple of low level walks.
Start the An Torr walk, at the car park on the A82, 2 miles south of the visitor centre, you can walk to Signal rock or through the woods. We are working on a project to improve these paths and increase their length.
Another walk is from the visitor centre to the village. It passes the remains of a Victorian house at Inverigan which is built near the site of one of the houses where clansmen were killed on the night of the Massacre. You can then walk on down to the village and visit the café, museum and craft shops.
While you are in the village you could walk around Glencoe lochan. These trails were built by Lord Strathcona who owned the Glen before the NTS. The trails are maintained by the Forestry Commission Scotland. They are situated at the eastern end of the village, drive along the village street and over the hump backed bridge, then turn up the Hospital Drive. The car park, with interpretation and directions around the trails, is signposted half way up the hospital drive.
The community council is currently working on a plan to built an orbital track which will go from the village to the A82 along the single track road, then round the A82 back to the Visitor Centre, and from there back to the village. Watch this space.
