  Picture looking into Glen Coe   Glen Coe.

This view is from the edge of Rannoch Moor looking down the glen.

The main road through the glen can be seen running into the picture from the righthand edge. This road was built in 1935 to replace the original very twisty single track road.

  Picture looking out over the Hidden Valley from Bidean nam Bian towards Glen Coe   The Hidden Valley.

Located between the easternmost two sisters, and seen here from Bidean nam Bian looking towards Glen Coe, this valley was caused by a very large boulder choke. There is a small bridge across the ravine in Glen Coe which gives access and the walk up is very easy with a little clambering over small boulders on the way.

There is a relatively easy route to the top of Bidean nam Bian from the Hidden Valley although you should not attempt it unless you know what you are doing.

  Picture looking into Glen Coe   Glen Coe.

The glen, from the lower end, in some dramatic lighting which is usually provided by equally dramatic weather.

Glen Coe is about 6 - 8 miles long depending on where you start and finish your measurements.
