There is a car park with plenty of spaces and a path just off the road that leads to the start of the walk. It is helpfully sign posted Pap of Glencoe in red paint.
It is a path that can be followed directly to the top. Just don't follow the munro path, so don't cross the bridge, just keep going up. It is equally well worn, so cannot go wrong.
I took Helen and Paul with me.
