Glencoe is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Scotland and as most of the attractions in the area are natural rather than man made visiting them is free. I've listed 5 of my best recommendations which should provide you with some very special Scottish moments and memories.
Go for a Walk
It might sound obvious but I have seen a countless number of people parking at the roadside and taking a quick photo of the mountains before jumping back in their cars and heading off at speed. If this is your idea of sightseeing or ticking Glencoe off your bucket list then the rest of this article probably isn't for you!
You don't have to be a mountaineer or experienced hill walker to explore the low lying paths that criss cross the glen, although the higher routes should definitely be left to the experts. Heading off the main road is the only way to experience the true haunting atmosphere and towering scale of this magical landscape.
A pleasant circular walk through woodland brings you to signal rock, the alleged place that the signal was given by the Campbells to begin the Glencoe massacre. Whether truth or legend it all adds to the mystery and folklore that captures the imagination and makes Glencoe much more than just a place of natural beauty.
The WalkHighlands website is an excellent online guide to walks all over Scotland including Glencoe.
If you want to find some of Glasgow's latest works of art then you just have to take a walk around the streets. In an attempt to rejuvenate neglected areas of the city, some giant sized murals are taking over buildings, walls and bridges.
Glasgow has always been well known as a city that loves art, design and architecture and it finally seems to have embraced the original beauty that can be created by street art.
