Glen Coe Rock and Ice (SMC)

The Glen Coe Rock and Ice climbing guidebook is a definitive climbing guide to the routes found on Glen Coe.

Grab your copy of the Glen Coe Rock and Ice (SMC) guide and take the ferry across Loch Lhinne to Ardgour to savour the superb gneiss crags on Garbh Bheinn. Further on savour the newly described crags of Ardnamurchan and escape the madding crowd at the same time. Glen Coe has long been in the forefront of high standard mountain routes, due to the two hour's travelling time for the majority of those living in Scotland, and with unrestricted access granted through the purchase of much of the area for what was then the National Trust for Scotland.

The rough lavas of the Buachaille and Bidein nam Bian's outlying hills provide many highly enjoyable wall routes, with the glassy granite slabs on Beinn Trilleachan as a suitable foil with numerous classic winter climbs.
