Keith isn't far wrong, but in the meantime go to the Reader Gallery page and use the Search Tags option. Just enter Glencoe to get plenty in the area, but Rannoch and Etive are also worth searching. And have fun when you get there!

So true Keith. Chris and I went to Lochleven (20 min drive from Glen Coe) in October. Stunning scenery all around the area! Rannoch Mor is somewhere we could have spent all our time.

Loch Etive is just down the road - use a tag search on here to see some stunning shots of that area and loch and if you are lucky on the road down there you will see some deer - we did.

Have a wonderful time!

Phil, give this website a try www.kingy.com. It is the Kingshouse hotel in Glencoe. They do let rooms and they also have a great webcam to see the weather up round that area.
One thing I would say is take extra film or extra memory cards as you'll want to take picture after picture after picture. Glencoe is an amazing place and are to photograph.

Your more than welcome. If your intrested on the way up through Loch Lomand why not stop off at the Falls of Falloch. You will see a sign for it near to the turn for it, well worth a stop and shot if in full flow.

Buachaille Etive Mor - at the start of the Pass of Glencoe,
The Falls of Falloch - on the west side of Loch Lomond,
Lochan na h-Achlaise - Rannoch Moor,
Sisters of Glencoe - Pass of Glencoe,
Loch Leven - looking towards the Pap of Glencoe,
Glen Nevis - nr Fort William.

All in all, pretty much as KeithH said, open the door et voila ;-D All these listed above, are easily accessible by car and a couple of minutes walk max ... there are further beauties to be had by exploring a little too. All of these were taken last year, need to go back again soon to get another Highland 'fix'.

A fabulous place to have as a base to explore. I hope you're there for a while as a week is just enough to do Glencoe justice let alone anything further afield.

HTH, Paul

There's also Glen Orchy and Glen Etive all within a relative short drive.
Enjoy yourself.
