Glencoe Photo Essay

Glencoe is between Glasgow and Fort William just north of Loch Lomond but despite this it took me until last month to actually visit this beautiful area. On our Scottish road trip in March we stayed in Kinlochleven and drove through the Glencoe village, assuming we had seen it all we headed off to Oban on a different road. Apparently I was very wrong on this assumption and had I of drive 5 miles in the other direction I would have been greeted with the views below. Still I’m kinda glad I missed it the first time around as the weather was dreadful in March. Glencoe is a photographers dream, the landscape is vast with a flat valley and monroe’s towering up each side. There are plenty of walks around this area where you can get much better photos however mine are all taken from stops on the road during two road trips. Glencoe is very popular and because of this all the roads/stopping points were busy with people and tourist coaches. If you could catch a nice day between October and April to visit I think you would have a much better time.
