The National Trust for Scotland Glencoe

The National Trust for Scotland in Glencoe is a fantastic visitor centre and cafe which offers an insight into the human history and natural history

With towering mountains sweeping down on both sides, Glencoe is at once spectacularly beautiful and yet strangely forbidding - a legacy perhaps from the infamous massacre that took place here on a snow-driven February night in 1692.

Today visitors are drawn to Glencoe for its dramatic landscape, wealth of wildlife and varied geology. Glencoe is also the cradle of scottish mountaineering and the area provides some of the finest climbing and walking country in the Highands.
Nestling into the landscape at the foot of the glen is the award-winning eco-friendly Glencoe Visitor Centre. A perfect stopping-off point if you're travelling through on the A82, with a cafe, a well-stocked shop and a viewing platform. Here you can access the information point and get weather forecasts, as well as friendly advice from rangers at the outlook station.

Learn more about the area with a visit to the exhibition Living on the Edge, which has exciting interactive displays and activities for adults and children. FInd out what it feels like to climb on ice, discover how the glen was formed, and try your hand at solving the conservation issues faced by the Trust.

During the summer, a programme of ranger-led walks and events start from the Visitor Centre. Our popular Wildlife Land Rover Safaris allow visitors of all abilities to get a completely different view of the glen and its wildlife in the company of a ranger.

If you are looking for an excellent base to stay in the Glencoe area we highly recommend Invercoe Hollidays who offer holiday homes, MacIain Cottages and a well maintained camping and touring park.
