Glencoe is a scenic and historic glen in the Scottish Highlands. It is part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. The magnificent glen is surrounded by wild and rugged mountains, which provide the perfect backdrop for sightseeing, hill walking and trail running. The glen has a rich history (incl. the 1692 Massace of Glencoe), and has gained more recent recognition through the filming of Harry Potter and the James Bond film Skyfall. The area boasts 11 stunning mountains of Munro status and the famous West Highland Way passes through the foothills, on its way to Fort William (at the base of Ben Nevis). Girls on Hills is founded on local knowledge and mountain experience.
Put on your running shoes and let us show you the wild trails and rugged beauty of these mountains….
