Find yourself at the lowest point of a valley with green, wild, rocky mountains looming overhead at Glen Coe. This U-shaped glen was formed in the last Ice Age by a glacier, leaving behind a 16 km (10 mi) long, 700 m (0.4 mi) wide stretch of scenic beauty. The serene landscape is ideal for a countryside hike, with many different tails varying in difficulty to choose from. Stop by the visitor center to learn more about the natural surroundings; on-site amenities include a small museum, restaurant, and cafe, where you can warm up with a coffee after a nice hike. Arrange your visit to Glen Coe and discover more family-friendly attractions in Glencoe using our Glencoe trip planning app.
