Walk Details
This gentle stroll around the Glencoe Lochan is suitable for wheelchair users and those with pushchairs. A lochan is simply a small loch or lake – and this one sits within the foothills of Glencoe.

We’re starting our walk in the car park at the Glencoe Lochan Trail Head. It’s a circular route – whilst our walk is going in a clockwise direction, you can go either way round.

The trails are clearly marked as you go through the magnificent, towering redwood trees with the mountain peaks reflected in the still waters of the lochan.

Access TOG Verdict:
This is a great trail amongst the redwoods and around the edge of the lochan. The path is wide, firm and smooth. There are some short gentle gradients which you may want to have someone with you for if in a manual chair. There are also plenty of places to pause and enjoy the stunning views!

Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says "There's no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing".
