Habitation in modern Glen Coe is largely confined to the village of Glencoe at the bottom of the glen. On the main road nearby is the new Glencoe Visitor Centre, opened in 2002. At the top of the glen it opens out onto the boggy expanse of Rannoch Moor at the Kingshouse Hotel. The name comes from its origin as a staging post on the military road now followed by the West Highland Way from here to Kinlochleven. Opposite the hotel is the junction formed by the single track road leading down Glen Etive. Also on the south side nearby is the Glen Coe Ski Centre at White Corries. The south side of lower Glen Coe revolves around the complex mountain architecture of Bidean nam Bian, a reclusive giant that keeps its summit hidden behind three huge protruding buttresses that tower over the glen. And between two of these buttresses lies the high level hidden valley of Allt Coire Gabhail, for many years used by the Glen Coe MacDonalds to hide their cattle, and anyone else's they could get their hands on. The north side of the glen is closely hemmed in by the jagged edge of the Aonach Eagach ridge, usually thought to be the most challenging ridge scramble in mainland Scotland.

The major attraction of the Fort William and Lochaber area is that there are just so many different individual attractions - both geographical and historical, natural and man-made, winter and summer.

The BBC drama series Rockface was filmed in this scenically stunning part of the Highlands.

From the most westerly point of the British mainland at Ardnamurchan to the peak of the country's highest mountain, Ben Nevis, and from the ski slopes of Glencoe and Aonach Mor to the golden beaches of Morar, the Fort William and Lochaber area not only boasts many of the Highland's best known landmarks, but also a veritable host of modern visitor facilities designed to interest, inform and entertain you.

Full range of outdoor education and activity pursuits. Including: skiing, snowboarding, climbing, sailing, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, environmental studies, orienteering, hill-walking, abseiling, telemarking, cross-country skiing and gorge-walking.

Quality Mountain Bike and Canadian Canoe hire. Pick-up and recovery service for those walkers, cyclists and canoeists wishing to walk the Great Glen Way, ride the Great Glen Cycleway or paddle the Caledonian Canal between Fort Wiliam and Inverness. Guided bike rides for small groups (maximum 16) by prior arrangement.

Caledonian Discovery offers a unique activity holiday on a large and very comfortable barge cruising Scottish Highland waterways. The barge, 'Fingal of Caledonia' moves each day to a new location and guests can just relax aboard and enjoy the spectacular scenery or take part in a wide variety of activities. Our own activities, which are included in the price, include walking, sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, mountain biking and orienteering. Also available are golf, pony trekking, white water rafting and water ski-ing. We also run special interest weeks on photography, music, painting and wildlife.
