Glencoe Mountains

Glencoe Mountains Landscape Photography | The Glencoe mountains ranges are split by the pass that runs from Rannoch Moor to Ballachuillish at Loch Leven, a sea loch. The Glen itself is 7.5 miles long but the valley from Kingshouse is 15 miles long. The highest summit of Glencoe is Bidean nam Bian 3766 ft whose outliers above the Glen compose the "three sisters", Beinn Fhada , Gearr Aonach, and Aonach Dubh. On the opposite north side of the Glen runs the Aonach Eagach ridge - 6 miles long ,2 miles of which are narrow and precipitous. The ridge ends at Sgor na Fiannaidh which leads north-west to the "Pap of Glencoe" (Sgor na Ciche) looking down on Glencoe village and Loch Leven to Ballachuillish and beyond to the Ardgour peninsula. Most of Glencoe is now owned by the National Trust of Scotland. Glencoe is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland. Glencoe Mountains are on the main road north A82 but Glencoe is famous also because of its scenic qualities and historical associations. Walkers and climbers love Glencoe Mountains for its variety of climbing. If you decide to visit Glencoe Mountains, you have to stay in the village of Glencoe-beautiful little place.
