Known in Gaelic as Sgòrr na Cìche, the Pap of Glencoe is a familiar landmark around the lower end of the glen and Loch Leven. Despite its modest height, it is a sensational viewpoint and gives a short but steep and very rough hillwalk.
Steep and boggy climb on a very eroded and rough path to the ridge; the final ascent of the Pap is rocky and almost a scramble.
Buses (local and Citilink) to Glencoe village.
Parking along start of forest track 500m along minor road from Bridge of Coe.
