Walk Details
The Pap of Glencoe, also known as Sgòrr na Cìche in Gaelic is a familiar landmark overlooking the town of Glencoe. Despite its modest height – this is a challenging hill walk that ends with something closer to scrambling! This is a summit many tourists head for due to its close proximity to the village of Glencoe – but this is a peak that needs to be taken seriously and cautiously.

Our walk starts on a minor track through some forest near the Bridge of Coe. From here we start to make our ascent to the summit of the Pap of Glencoe. Underfoot, depending on what the weather has been like, it may get boggy. The path is good in places but in others is eroded and can get slippy in wet weather.

The stone dome of the summit is where the scrambling begins – but the view when you reach the top makes it all worth it!

When you’ve had your fill of that view – it’s time to (carefully) retrace your steps back down again.
