Sign at the car parking besides the sub station for "Pap of Glencoe" and another by the gate further down the track
Good wee walk on a good wee path. Bit rocky towards the summit. Ground was a bit frozen from about 500m point which helped over a wee boggy bit.
Light dusting of snow on the rocks up to the summit.
Bit cold and windy.


Fantastic views over Loch Linnhe and Beinn A Blethir.
Bidean looking menacing as ever.

Drove round to the Glencoe massacre memorial / cross for a look.
If you're into memorials go have a look (and there's a 1st WW one close by as well)
Cheers folks
