I doubt anyone could not be moved by the love story behind this Lochan. Great walk and scenery is amazing with some of the best views of the Pap of Glencoe

Nice easy walk. Car park close but only short walk from "downtown" Glencoe. Also a path along the glen which is nice.

Very nice walks, not particularly strenuous. Lovely glen. Great for walking dogs. One needs an hour at most to visit.

The drives through Glencoe was incredible and the hiking at Glencoe Lochan was the highlight of our trip. Finding the trail head is a little confusing, but locals will direct you when asked. Ample parking. Well marked trails. Beautiful views!
