There are three walks in the Glencoe Lochan. Each is well signposted and the paths are good even after wet weather. Depending on your energy you could do one or all three. Each walk is about 30 minutes so you could probably do all within...More

We just fancied a little heart-starter, and this place was suggested. From the car park, there are 3 walks, yellow, red and blue, and they vary in “difficulty” with yellow being a low-level woodland walk, red also low-level, around Lochan, and the blue (which we...More

There are three beautiful walks here, all together they all probably take max one hour. I spent an extra half an hour taking pictures of the pretty lake.

There's a car park next to it or you can walk 10 min from the village. There's a choice of 3 trails with different levels of difficulty. One of them is also suitable for wheelchair users. It's a beautiful short walk with great views.

What a fantastic scenic trek, short and covers 3 different routes, starting from car park. The 3 routes are well marked, the ‘Blue Mountain trail’ which is steep with breathtaking views,and heads to the lochan. The views across the artificial lochan are just breathtaking! The...More

Northern Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 is incredible! And the Glencoe area is not to be missed. Awe inspiring beauty abounds! When it’s raining you can see 50-60 waterfalls in a 20 mile stretch. Must see!

Wasn't a very good weather when doing this walk, but the scenery was still lovely. There are a few trails available, relatively easy to walk. Nice little side trip to take!
