Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Whilst staying at the Kingshouse Hotel we took a drive to Glen Etive and kept going until we ran out of road at Loch Etive.
Lovely drive with single track and lots of passing places.
It's very peaceful at the Loch and the scenery was hauntingly beautiful.

While in the area, and after seeing it on the TV recently, we decided to take a drive off the A82 to get a taste of the Skyfall James Bond drive. The views just get better and better throughout the journey. It can get busy, but there are plenty of passing places. If you are stopping to take photos, expect the drive to take around 45 minutes to the end of the road at Loch Etive, which itself is stunning. If you are passing by, and have the time to spare, make sure you take a look!

This is a single track, dead end road approximately 10 miles, ending at a lake. Scenes from Skyfall were shot along the road, next to the river. Ian Flemings actual former home is near the end of the road. Nothing quite like Bond’s ancestral home in Skyfall but has some similarities.

The scenery is stunning along this drive. Best when quiet as negotiating cars coming the opposite direction can become a little tedious.

Signposted on the left, just past Kingshouse Hotel, under the looming Buchaille Etive Mhor, this single track road takes you to Loch Etive. The scenery is gorgeous in both directions but the drive can be hairy in icy, snow or heavy rain conditions.

Inconsiderate tourists, ignorant of passing place etiquette, can be a pest but persevere, as it is worth it. Depressing to read travellers saying there are endless parking places. There are very few. A passing place is not a parking place but a vital way to allow flow of traffic.

Red Deer can often be seen and soaring eagles. I leave my photos to tell the rest.

Road was closed due to bad weather conditions. Well they would be if allowed to drive all the way in. The main road was clear but within the valley maybe not. We just temporarily stopped for a quick "Skyfall" mimic shot then back on the main road

Travelled here to view the area where James Bond and M stop on the way to Skyfall. This area has a location on google maps so is easy to find. The scenery on the way along is pretty and lots of spaces to stop for photos. It can be busy so just wait your turn to recreate the photo. Loch Etive is at the end of the single track road if you want to see this too.

Hearing this place is a James Bond location and looking at the stunning views - we planned the trip to this place. A long one way with passing places to reach may be tiring for some people - but the path itself has so many photo friendly locations. There were deer with large antlers on the way. We had our pizza lunch (take away one) next to the lake. Parking facility is limited and we did not have problem on the day we went. Definitely a recommended place.

Took a drive along on one of the warmest days this year and parked up about half way along. Took a 10 minutes walk and found amazing deep pools and spent the full day basking on the rocks and jumping in an out of the water. Even managed to get our 12 year old jumping of the highest cliffs. Probably the best fun we’ve had as a family that doesn’t involve an entry fee. As long as everyone cleans up and leaves the place tidy will continue to be an amazing place

The drive through Glen Etive is absolutely breathtaking! It had rained the day before so we saw lots of waterfalls. The hills were a brilliant green colour and looked amazing. We also saw several Red Deer. The only drawback were tourists who used the passing lanes along this single track road to park their car. At one point we had to wait 4 passing lanes back for a car to pass us as the 3 other passing spots between us and the car driving were filled with parked cars.
