Description:

 

Starting at the Glencoe Visitor Centre, walk towards Ballachulish, taking a left past the Co-op.  Continue up this road past the Shinty pitch until the road bends sharply to the right and goes over a burn (the Laroch).  Turn left up a single road signposted to the churches and continue on this road until it goes into the Forest.  Go through a kissing gate and after about 400m there is a signposted track to the left with a map.  Turn left here and follow this track up through the coniferous plantation, past some old shepherds cottage ruins, and on to a slate picnic table,  From here you are at the top of the walk and have a fantastic view over the Loch and the village.  From here descend on a slate path into the slate quarry.

Once in the quarry take a wander around as the intepretation boards are great
