As always, before you go out make sure you have good walking shoes or boots and suitable clothing – sometimes you can see all four seasons in one day here in Glencoe! It’s always wise to let someone know where you’re going too.
Here’s a selection of walks in and around the area:
The Hidden Valley
Glencoe Activities is next door to the Ballachulish Hotel, where you can hire mountain bikes for a quick blast along Glencoe’s trails, or take them out for a full day.
Activities on the water
With Loch Leven and Glencoe just hop, skip and jump from the hotel (literally), we’d be crazy not to make the most of it! That is why we have put together a range of activities that make the most of what’s around us.
Book in with Mark at the Isles of Glencoe Hotel for some serious outdoor action. Whether you need to perfect your kayaking, kayak with the family or experience stand-up paddle boarding, Mark will show you how it’s done. Each activity is great for all the family.
There are several cruise companies in Fort William that run daily cruises on Loch Linnhe, a trip that gives you a dramatic view of Glencoe. The skipper of Crannog Cruises gives you a live commentary – pointing out sightings of seals, otters and porpoises.
Drive round to Loch Shiel and you can go for a cruise on M.V. Sileas – choose from a variety of trips from one hour to a full day. For something a little more pacey, try SeaXplorer – fast-paced wildlife and fishing trips by RIB boat depart daily from just outside the hotel.
South of Oban you’ll find Seafari. There are daily excursions to explore some of the best sea life in the area, as well as Corryvreckan, the world’s third largest whirlpool. (Famously, it nearly claimed the life of George Orwell.) Keep your eyes peeled for basking sharks and porpoises.
Climbing, abseiling, coasteering
The experienced guides at Vertical Descents will take you through a full range of outdoor activities – from body boarding to canyoning and coasteering. You can also give Scotland’s first Via Ferrata a go – it’s a 500 metre ladder winding its way up a cliff face.
The Lettershuna Riding Centre has a selection of well-schooled horses and ponies for hacking and trekking. Most of their riding is on quiet coastal tracks and beaches – and there’s a steed for every ability.
An excellent place to head if the weather turns, the Ice Factor is the biggest indoor ice climbing arena in the world.
You can give ice climbing a go, or stick with traditional rock climbing if you prefer. The aerial adventure course takes you ten metres above ground, onto a series of increasingly wobbly rope-based obstacles. There’s a kids’ play area for the little ones, and a steam room and sauna if you need to warm up after the ice.
