Well marked route throughout with beautiful views, particularly when setting off from Kingshouse and as you reach the top of the Devil's staircase. Most of the route is comfortable underfoot although there are a few loose-ish downhill sections. The main climb (Devil's staircase) is not too taxing as it zigs and zags up the mountain, there are rocks to rest on the way if needed.

Ran as part of a big WHW trip. Sensational vistas throughout. Devil's Staircase was steep going up, but absolutely fine once you're up.

Got to stay at the newly reopened Kings House; beautiful hotel after hiking for days. Getting out requires a steep climb up the Devil's Staircase but then it's all easy going downhill to charming town of Kinlochleven.

Easy trail that ends in a cool town - Kinlochleven- with a few decent restaurants. NOTE: Kingshouse is under construction and NO parking is allowed there. However, you can park at Glencoe ski resort or 2 miles west of Kingshouse where the Devils Staircase begins, this skipping the two miles of trail that follows the road.

First to Review

Easy trail in terms of technical features. Beautiful in terms of streams and waterfall features. We hiked the first mile up which is locally referred to as Devils Stairway which starts on A82 eight miles south of the visitor center near the only patch of trees across from the only white house. Sounds sketchy, but these exact directions helped us find it.
