Coe Munros when traveling northwest towards Glencoe
village, where the Glencoe Mountain Resort is
The first views of the mountain traveling north
are on the left from the large Welcome To The
Highlands sign on the A82 road, a good photo
A few miles further on, you will see a blue sign,
as in the image top, for the resort. This lay by at
the sign also gives good views of the mountain, as
seen second top. You can see the chair lifts running
up onto the mountain from here.
The image top is looking west down the A82 through
Glen Coe, with another 8 Munros either side of the
road between here and Glencoe village.
The car park for this hike is at the resort. The
Glasgow to Fort William
& Skye bus drops off and picks up at the
entrance to the resort, about half of a mile walk
from the entrance to the resort.
You hike up the path below the chair lifts much of
the way, then vere right for the rocky ridge to the
top, avoiding a boggy section. There is a cafe at the
car park, and two cafes up on the mountain.
The ridge between Meall a Bhuiridh & Creise is
said to be fairly safe in summer, but can be
dangerous with snow and ice in winter.
The resort has a few holiday cabins next to the
car park, ideal if you are hiking a number of
mountains in this area.
The Kings House Hotel is
situated on the north side of the A82, good for meals
and accommodation including a bunkhouse.
Make sure and take an Ordnance Survey Map and
Compass on these hikes, and know how to use them, as
in cloud, these mountains can be deadly. In Winter,
make sure you have Crampons and an Ice Axe, and know
how to use them.
