Walking and Munros


Mountaineering

Glencoe is the home of Scottish mountaineering and was the scene of many first ascents, by celebrated Victorian climbers such as Raeburn, Naismith, Collie and the Abrahams. The area is still extremely popular in both summer and winter.  There are 20 major climbing sites, each with many individual routes.  It is estimated that Hill walkers make about 150,000 visits to the property each year.

Mountains

Buachaille Etive Mor and Buachaille Etive Beag at the East side of the property, the Three Sisters on the south of the glen, and the famous ridge walk along the Aonach Eagach forming our Northern boundary.
We have 8 Munros on those - Bidean Nam Bian, Stob Coire Sgreamhach, Sgurr nam Fiannaidh, Meal Dearg, Stob na Broige, Stob Dearg, Stob Coire Rainneach and Stob Dubh. No Corbetts though.

In all there are over 49 miles (79 km) of footpath on the property which we operate a rolling programme of maintenance and repair on.
