The first small Glencoe Visitor Centre opened in the 1970s. That Centre was replaced by this larger Centre in 2002.

The Museum part of the Centre has a small entry fee, giving information on the Area from AD 300 to the present day. This covers Early Religeon, Vikings, area Clans, Wildlife, Plants, and Geology.

The Centre also gives information on Hiking and Climbing in the Area with its 10 mountains over 3,000ft.

Climbing as a sport began in Scotland in the mid 1800s, and became extremely popular at Glen Coe in the 1940s and 50s. See the Click on Map above for the Mountains that attract many Hikers wanting to hike all Scotlands Mountains over 3,000ft, referred to as Munros.

There are also a few well marked Walks down Glens between the mountains.

The Glencoe Visitor Centre also has a large Cafe with outdoor seating as well. The Cafe has great views east along Glen Coe.

The Visitor Centre also has a large Shop, with a range of Scottish clothes and gifts.

The Glen is about 13 miles long with 3,000ft Mountains either side. The Glencoe Mountain Resort is at the east side of the glen.
