Short walk but only if you are fit Dec 06, 2010
I say only if you are fit because, although short, it is far more than a stroll, requires a good head for heights and the use of hands at times helps.

I don't know whether people in countries outside the UK know the history of the Glencoe massacre in 1692 - but if you don't, I sugest you Google 'Gencoe massacre'. The lost valley is one of the places where survivors of the massacre escaped. It had long been the place where the MacDonalds kept their rustled (stolen) cattle.

You will see what are called the 'Three Sisters jutting out towards you on the left of the road as you come down the glen. A path between the first two leeds up to the valley through woods and over paths with a severe drop and some minor walking difficulties. When there you have fairly steep cliffs to both sides. I have been up the ones to your left and from there to the summit of Bidean nam Bean, the highest of the Glencoe peaks. I DO NOT recommend that in winter unless you are well experienced but the walk to the valley itself is fine for those who don't fancy the tops.
