A cycle from Glen Coe Ski centre down Glen Etive ... and back!

Glen Etive is a very scenic area of the Highlands, popular with walkers and climbers. Also used as a dramatic backdrop in movies like Braveheart and Skyfall (give it a google!).

The route takes us from the car park at Glen Coe ski area onto the main trunk road (A82). We then turn right after a few km onto the minor road that goes all the way down the glen to the top of Loch Etive. Hopefully lots of photos opportunities along the way. The road is single track and has a good tarmac surface.

We can have a packed lunch at the bottom ready for the mostly gentle climb back to our starting point.

I have put the event time as 6 hours, but we should be finished long before that.

If you don't drive there are usually folk who can give you a lift, sign up and send a message on the page.

This is a remote route so no shops, please bear this in mind. Route shown on Strava link below:
