Welcome back to Glencoe

Many people have spent months dreaming of visiting and exploring the Glencoe area. Now it’s time they can turn those dreams into plans by booking stays and adventures here.

With more information available, it is easier to plan a trip – whether you’re travelling locally or from further afield. Here’s a quick rundown of key points for you:

Locals are welcome – join us in supporting our local tourism industry as it reopens. Rediscover the attractions of south Lochaber. Eat local, buy local, see local, enjoy local.

What’s open? – throughout the area many tourism and hospitality businesses are opening this week – here’s our current list. There are others who will continue to prepare to welcome visitors back. The Ice Factor and Glencoe Folk Museum are two local attractions who will not open immediately. The best information is online.

Plan ahead, book direct – capacity is affected by social distancing measures and some businesses are not opening fully. Please make sure to contact individual providers to check opening times and safety information before your visit.

Responsible tourism – please respect this beautiful area and take your litter home with you. Take only photos and leave only footprints. The Scottish Outdoor Access Code applies all year-round and offers some great tips and advice.

Too busy? – if it’s busy, move on and explore another spot. Perhaps enjoy ‘slow travel’, visit fewer locations and really get to know the area, by foot, bike or paddle.

Face coverings – are mandatory on public transport and in shops. Please note there are exceptions for some health conditions and for children under 5.

Protect others and yourself – do not travel if you have COVID-19 symptoms or have been told to isolate. Observe physical distancing, cough etiquette, regularly use hand sanitiser and wash your hands frequently. For staff safety many businesses still prefer card or online payments at this time.

Social distancing – will remain at 2 metres as the default, but 1 metre exceptions may be introduced including: public transport; outdoor hospitality; indoor hospitality; and retail. These areas will be clearly signposted for you.

Safety first – every business has increased hygiene, risk assessed, signposted and re-trained. Look out for the ‘Good to Go’ scheme throughout the area.

Know before you go – Government guidelines change regularly, please check them before travelling.
