Area Overview

Glencoe is named after the River Coe, and is situated in the Western Highlands of Scotland. A glacier originally formed the glen, and the area is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It has become a popular centre for mountaineering and skiing. Its northerly location means that temperatures hover around 17°C in the summer months, with winter bringing freezing temperatures, snow and ice. As well as being known for spectacular scenery, Glencoe became famous as a filming destination for the third Harry Potter film, as well as the James Bond film, Skyfall.

Things To Do in Glencoe

  • West Highland Museum, Fort William: Learn about the region and its history. Collections in the museum include those relating to Bonnie Prince Charlie and the Jacobites. Founded in 1922, this is one of the oldest museums in the Scottish Highlands.
  • Scottish Segway Centre, Ballachulish: Guided tours of the area are available – view the countryside from a different perspective.
  • Camusdarach beach: Beautiful white sand beach offering views of the Isle of Skye, with dune paths and rocky outcrops.
  • Glencoe and North Lorne Folk Museum: See Jacobite costumes, toys, weapons and other relics in this museum set within thatched cottages in the village of Glencoe. Get an idea of what it was like to live and work in the Highlands in those times.
  • Glen Nevis gondola: Gondola rides taking approximately 15 minutes each way, offering spectacular views of the Nevis mountain range, surrounding forest and countryside. It may be possible to see the Inner Hebrides, depending on weather conditions.
  • Jacobite Steam Train: Take the steam train from Fort William to Mallaig and enjoy magnificent scenery and lovely Mallaig bay.
  • Isle of Lismore: Take the passenger ferry from Port Appin for the short five minute trip to the Isle of Lismore which is one of the Argyll islands, only ten miles long and one mile wide.

When to go to Glencoe
