Glencoe ©
Glencoe or Glencoe Village is the main settlement in Glen Coe in the Lochaber area of the Scottish Highlands. Step out of the city life by going to Highland Titles Nature Reserve and Morar Beach. Take a break from Glencoe with a short trip to Camusdarach Beach in Arisaig, about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Glen Etive, admire the verdant scenery at Glen Coe, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Saint Andrew's Church, and pause for some photo ops at James Stewart Memorial.

To find photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, use the Glencoe journey maker site.

Land's End to Glencoe is an approximately 11.5-hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Land's End in November, with highs in Glencoe at 10°C and lows at 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) so you can drive to Edinburgh.

World Heritage-listed Edinburgh combines ancient and modern in a uniquely Scottish atmosphere.
Edinburgh Castle and St Giles' Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Get a sense of the local culture at National Museum of Scotland and Royal Yacht Britannia. The adventure continues: take in the dramatic natural features at Arthur's Seat, make a trip to The Royal Mile, tour the pleasant surroundings at Calton Hill, and wander the streets of Edinburgh Old Town.
