It’s a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit whether it is to climb indoors or just visit the cafe or very well stocked outdoor shop.

We booked to do the beginners ice climbing for an hour after rainy weather in Glencoe changed our plans. We had so much fun, our instructor Aidan was awesome. We would definitely do it again.
