    Hi @Archies

    Glen Coe is just magical and the first time I drove through there it put a lump in my throat. I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

    Where do you plan to visit in June?

    Hi I agree completely! I've always gone up the A82 to Glencoe but last time I was there, we drove down on our way back from Skye. It gives you a different perspective actually! It's a stunning drive and definitely recommended even though it's usually very busy!!

    Hello @Archies

    Welcome! Yes, Glen Coe takes your breath away. I always feel so small when I drive through the glen. I'll be passing there soon and can't wait to see it again! My heart is in the highlands! :)

    I've been through Glen Coe about 20 times and it still takes my breath away!

    Hello, Archies, It is something really nice to know that you have visited the Glencoe  and again going to make a move around this place to have a fun time and explore its beauty. So, best of luck for this plan and enjoy.

    Hi @Archies It's lovely to hear you had a great visit. It's a very beautiful area and a favourite of mine, especially in winter when it's lovely and quiet. I love visiting the wild deer outside the Kings House Hotel. They're so used to humans that they'll let you hand feed them.  I always take oatcakes to bribe them.  :). If you're returning to Glencoe in June check out the Glencoe Lochan walk if you haven't already. It's a gorgeous walk.  If you're feeling more energetic then the Devil's Staircase is amazing.  From Kinlochleven towards Glencoe it's like climbing the Noerth Face of the Eiger (I exaggerate) but rewarding.  :p
    I'm a Scottish travel blogger and freelance writer with an extensive knowledge of travelling in Scotland.  I'm always on the road exploring my wonderful country.  I love remote places, history and the great outdoors.

    Hi Samantha, Thank you for the information. We did visit the Kings House Hotel. But there was only one female deer there, we will call again when we return, I will definately check the Lochan Walk out when we return. I'm really looking forward to it. Such a beautiful area. Thank you all for the kind welcome

    Hello all, we will be visiting Fort Augustus the first of July for a week and I am very excited.  We have never been to Scotland.
