Paul (Outlook Station Ranger Desk): Apart from working as part of the Visitor Centre/Ranger Team he is presently studying for a BSc in Environmental Sciences with Archaeology. If you want to make the most of your visit to Glencoe, then this is man to talk to. For Walking information (all grades), Local History, Archaeology, Geology, Glaciology or any other "ology", then speak to Paul at the Ranger Desk and be prepared for a memorable experience of our wonderful Glen. His comments are: "The Glencoe environment is diverse and unique and has something special to offer any visitor to the Glen, no matter what their age, level of fitness or particular interest. But be warned, the holistic and atmospheric influence of Glencoe works its way into you and has a habit of pulling visitors back time and time again. You have been warned!!!"
