The Route

Glencoe Village

No.10 on the route

Glen Coe is known for its beautiful scenery or as the Scottish Natural Heritage says; "soaring, dramatic splendour of Glen Coe". Glen Coe has it all; from incredible mountains to woodland and the bustling village of Glencoe. It is often called Glencoe village as a way to differentiate between Glen Coe itself and avoid confusion.

The Gaelic name for Glencoe Village is A'Charnaich, which translates as ‘the place of cairns’. In the village, you can find local shops such as a Post Office and grocery store. There are also several accommodation options including hotels, B&Bs, lodges, chalets and cottages for rent. It is no wonder that Glencoe is an ideal destination for a short break with so much to see and do around the area, especially for hill walkers.

Glencoe Village

Film fans will recognise the scenery from many of the big blockbusters such as Glen Estive for Skyfall but also Glen Coe was the home of Hagrid in the Harry Potter films and featured in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Throughout the village, you can find notable memorial sites such as the plaque at Henderson Stone and the Massacre of Glencoe Memorial.
