A walk up the Pap of Glencoe in Winter

This lovely mountain is the Pap of Glencoe. It is about 2500 feet and at a leisurely 1,000 feet an hour you can tell how long it would take up and down. Easy stuff, but brilliant view from the top.

Legend has it that a MacDonald piper broadcast a lament about the Massacre to tell the other clans about it - that would be just after February 14th, in 1692.

Here is a report from two of our friendliest returning guests, who stayed with us in January.

"We had a good week despite poor weather as it forced us to relax a bit - we had a wet wander near Port Appin, a fun visit to the Oban Sealife centre, a day on Beinn Sguilaird (near Creagan) (v windy), a walk up the Pap of Glencoe, a day on Garbh Bheinn (over the Corran ferry) and a lazy day with a swim in Fort William."
