Nice waterfall view, but heavy clear-cutting makes the rest a bit lacking.

Excellent, family-friendly walk. There are different trails for all abilities.

Whoa. It started as a rocky scramble, then followed the ridgeline into small downhill streams, boggy marsh, and into a muddy small trail covered with a fern forest. Very slippery. Be careful after rain, especially with the initial rocky scramble. Still worth the adventure

What a hike! First section was a doddle but that scree towards the top was less than enjoyable. Good payoff to get over that lip before heading up to the summit. Stunning views on a clearly day 1st July. Luckily the clouds cleared by the time I got up there. The second peak was a little daunting as I wasn’t familiar with the route and the weather was a little up and down. Followed my nose for a bit to decide if I was going to double back but the path was clear the whole way up and again the whole way down into the glen. Lots of water if around on the way down if you fancy a quick splash and a drink. Only issue with the water is that the path steps over a couple of burns. It was just manageable for me today but I think it would be easy to get caught out in a particularly wet month. A must do hike! You won’t regret it

Nice short walk for relaxing after the bigger hikes.

We thoroughly enjoyed the hike. The path is fairly easy to follow, the decent down took a little longer than we expected. Walking through the valley was our absolute highlight. It took us roughly 7 hours with several stops.

Easy, tranquil, picturesque and not busy on a Tuesday afternoon on a beautiful evening in mid-June.

Beautiful, moderate hike. A few short rock scrambles that can be slippery. We camped in the valley overnight and surprisingly were the only people. Even at midnight, we could still appreciate the views of the valley from the almost full moon!

Wow! What a trek. This has all the views, going up, on top, and coming down. Serious rock scrambles, different terrain, everything. This one pushed us!

Great hidden Glencoe peak with great views. I mean hidden because there are so many great hiking trails in Glencoe this gets overlooked. We went in June and all parking lots were full but this one was not, it is a moderate to hard hike but very doable. The 360 views are awesome at the top.

Quite a few people on the trail, but it didn’t feel crowded. Amazing views despite the typical Scottish weather.

Pretty relaxing walk through a Pacific Northwest forest while in Scotland!

Fun, quick hike that gives you a taste of Glencoe terrain. Midges were very active beginning if June.

One of the highlights of our trip to Scotland. Very rewarding views from the top. We parked at the East trailhead, walked to the West trailhead and started from there. This allowed us to end at the car which worked well. There is a significant amount of loose rock to navigate on the descent, but nothing too crazy.

instead of taking the path on the right after the white house, I went left and ended up climbing massive cliffs to the top of Etive Mor. Was absolutely amazing!

This was a nice little trail not far from our Bed and Breakfast for a great morning stroll prior to breakfast. there is a little lake that the ducks call home and from one lookout you can see the loch.

This was a pretty walk up to the opening of the hidden Valley, an amazing site at how huge and open this valley was. Almost the entire walk you can hear water, and for 1/3 of it there is a creek beside you. We decided to refresh the feet on the way down and have a soak in the water. It was very cold, but felt great. Definitely a simple but powerfully pleasant hike with great views.

Ok, so first we googled the devil's staircase and It's in the wrong spot on Google maps. And we were in a cell dead area and needed to be able to search it, because alltrails doesn't have just Devils staircase. Once we figured out where we were going it was fantastic. We parked at Altnafeadh car park, but careful there there are some very deep pot holes. It starts off with a great walk, then gets interesting very quickly. After the staircase is done the views were amazing, but then we looked over the backside for even more amazing views. Then climbed up to Stob Mhic Mhartuin for even more amazing views. It was breathtakingly beautiful.

An unforgettable experience! Word of caution, do your best to go over all pinnacles. Side paths are extremely hazardous, turfy, often wet, and difficult to return from.
