The drive through Glen Coe was just beautiful! We went on a day where we had rain one minute and then sunshine the next, as the sun would break through the clouds the mountains would just light up! The traffic wasn't bad for it being...More
To be honest, I almost don't want to write a review that is -- well, honest -- because part of the appeal of Glen Coe is that while there is a lively tourist industry afoot, it is not yet so successful that the breathtaking scenery...More
Glencoe is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. The vistas, mountains, streams and wildlife are just amazing! Glen Etvie Road is a very nice drive in a valley between Glencoe and Loch Lomond. You have to experience it as pictures can't...More
I can’t say enough about this area. We did. A roadtrip throughout Scotland, including skye and the Cairngorms. Glencoe was hands down the most beautiful place. The scenery was stunning, and there’s tons of great hiking. Plodda falls was gorgeous
My friend and I did the hike to the lost valley. It was a pretty easygoing uphill climb to get to the lost valley and took us about 45 minutes to get to the valley at a very casual pace. The hike goes along a...More

Really depends on where you are starting from and returning to. It is 2.5 hour drive from Glasgow to Glencoe on the A82 which is the scenic part. We actually drive from Edunburgh to Skye through Glencoe and made a day of it... More
Really depends on where you are starting from and returning to. It is 2.5 hour drive from Glasgow to Glencoe on the A82 which is the scenic part. We actually drive from Edunburgh to Skye through Glencoe and made a day of it. That is really all I can vouch for. The A82 is a gorgeous drive though with plenty of pull offs - you should definitely do it - even if you have to go out and back! Best views in my opinion are between Tyndrum and Glencoe!

Hi Beth... I think your planning is right on. I can't speak for the Iona stretch, but we were in Glencoe, Eilean Donan and Skye only a fortnight ago. There will always be folk who will say you need more time in Glencoe, but... More
Hi Beth... I think your planning is right on. I can't speak for the Iona stretch, but we were in Glencoe, Eilean Donan and Skye only a fortnight ago. There will always be folk who will say you need more time in Glencoe, but in 4 hours you will get a very real and very beautiful sense of the place. The A82 road which runs in and out of Glencoe is a beauty. It is one of the most scenic roads in the UK. Be sure to turn left off it along a road signposting Glen Etive and it'll take you into a very quiet and picturesque valley that seems to hardly attract any visitors. I have posted photos on my recent reviews, if you would like a sneak Peak.
Also worth a visit is the Glencoe Mountain Resort, where you can ride the chairlift up into the mountains. You'll have time for that. There are also some nice viewpoints for stopping along the main road through Glencoe as you make your way to Fort William.
As for Eilean Donan, the view of it upon the lake was all we wanted. And it is lovely. We weren't interested in the interior. There is a nice cafe there too.
And Skye... As you will already know, is such a spectacularly beautiful place... You will really love it. Again, I have reviewed and photographed it all, if that can be any help to you.
Wish you a happy trip and some glorious weather... ☺️
