Fort William to Glen Etive - a spectacular drive through some of the country's most dramatic scenery.
Take the A82 from Fort William towards Glencoe. Perhaps the most spectacular part of this drive is the drive through Glencoe itself.
Following the A82 towards Tyndrum, the road climbs steadily up through the glen where the valley is at its narrowest, and on past the craggy heights of Buchaille Etive Mor, standing at the entrance to the glen.
As you pass the mountain you will see a turning to the right to Glen Etive. This single track road takes you down Glen Etive to the head of Loch Etive some 12 ‘Scottish’ miles! It is well worth the trip. Many have described this as one of the prettiest glens in the country. The River Etive forms numerous pools and waterfalls as it courses towards the sea, and it’s not uncommon to spot a golden eagle or two in this stunning place.
The Glencoe Visitor Centre is between Glencoe Village and the Glen itself.
The closest beach to Glencoe is probably the cobble beach at Cuil Bay, some 10 miles from Glencoe village. Convenience and ease of access make this a popular spot when the sun is out. The view down the loch is stunning. It’s also a great spot to sit and watch the sun go down round a driftwood campfire!
