Glencoe, Climbing

Glencoe is without a doubt one of Scotland’s and indeed the UK’s premier climbing destinations. Between Glen Coe and neighbouring Glen Etive there are more than 100 registered routes across eight or so sites. These locations are found on some of Scotland’s most popular Munro’s. The Buchaille Etive Mor and Bidean Nam Bian in Glen Coe both sport numerous routes on a number of faces while Bein Trilleachen, a Corbett situated at the south eastern end of Glen Etive provides another venue known as Etive Slabs.

The routes on offer span the British summer climbing grades so there is something out there for every level of climber. At Kinlochleven just up the road there is an indoor ice climbing wall and in Fort William slightly farther on again there is also an indoor wall. On top of this and hiding just behind Fort William is Ben Nevis which also offers up many traditional summer and winter climbing routes.

Glencoe does not boast a guide’s office however; it is possible to arrange instruction and the services of a guide who can provide their services in this region.
