What to see and do in Glencoe and Lochaber
The area of Lochaber, known as the Outdoor Capital of the UK has much to offer everyone. Climbers and hill-walkers should be in their element with Ben Nevis and many “Munros” close by.
Boat hire, pony trekking and riding are within easy reach and Coastal Cruising and Coach Tours are organised by local operators. We recommend our local golf course and cafe at www.dragonstooth.co.uk & cycle hire in Glencoe from www.crankitupgear.com
If you have some difficulties getting around on foot, www.shopmobilitylochaber.org.uk may be able to help with their local wheelchair service.
There are also many interesting indoor exhibitions and activities in the area should the weather be less than clement. Things to see and do in the area:
