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.

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.
