Glencoe Village is near the site of the Glencoe Massacre
Glencoe village is located just off the A82 and is a picturesque community surrounded by the Glencoe mountains and the Pap of Glencoe.
The village lies at sea-level with the Pap of Glencoe, a prominent mountain, towering above. Glencoe village is a bright and friendly place with a good choice of accommodation, a Folk Museum with traditional thatched roof, shops and amenities.
A short journey over a humped-back stone bridge takes you to a Forestry car park, where several pleasant walks have been set out amongst mature trees around a lochan (small lake). The Forstry Lochan is a special place and something we recommend visiting. Visiting the Glencoe area should be a must for all visitors to Lochaber. Within 6 miles of any direction, the local community provides a huge selection of hotels, guesthouses, B & Bs, and self-catering accommodation.
Other local businesses provide water-based sports and mountain guiding, Coffee shops and crafts, a clothing outlet all welcome you to visit. One local company manufactures violins and clarsachs - musical instruments which are sold around the world.
