Glen Coe is one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland (in my opinion…) and is surrounded by wild and precipitous mountains. Most of the Glen is now owned by the National Trust for Scotland and the nice visitor centre displays the natural and historical significance of the glen. Glen Coe is a very popular tourist destination: partly because of its scenic qualities and attraction for walkers and climbers.
The River Etive rises on the peaks surrounding Rannoch Moor and from the Kings House, the Etive flows for about 18 km, reaching the sea loch, Loch Etive. A narrow road runs down the glen and ends at the head of the loch, though rough tracks continue along both shores. The river is one of Scotland’s most popular and challenging kayaking runs. It provides a multitude of solid Grade 4(5) rapids with a variety of falls and pool drops.
The Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly island of the Inner Hebrides.
The Storr is a rocky hill and presents a steep rocky eastern face. The area has a number of weirdly shaped rock pinnacles, the remnants of ancient landslips. One of the most famous of these is known as the Old Man of Storr.
