Glencoe Mountain Ltd
About Glencoe Mountain Ltd, Inverness
Glencoe Ski area (also known as Glencoe Mountain or the White Corries ski centre), near Glencoe, Highland, is the oldest ski area in Britain and hosted the country's first ski tow which was installed in 1955 for around £5,000. The ski area has eight lifts on Meall a' Bhuiridh, which serve a variety of ski runs. However, with recent funding, a new non-detachable poma has been added to the mountain for the start of the 2016 season, and the installation of another chairlift has been proposed which will be operational for the 2017/18 season. The current access chairlift will also be renovated, with new chairs and engine drive, and so will the cafe facilities at the base of the mountain, with a new ticketing system as well as an improved ski hire shop. The resort is currently home to Scotlands longest and steepest skiing slopes. The car parking area lies below the normal snow line, so the skiing is reached via a low level access chair lift, although it is occasionally possible to ski all the way down to the car park, as has been the case many a time this season. The access chair lift also runs in summer for tourists, walkers and mountain bikers. The ski centre is located on a very isolated stretch of the A82 amongst some of the most dramatic scenery in the UK, roughly 15 miles (24 km) from Invercoe. Public transport is infrequent and the ski centre is around 1 km from the main road. It is possible to do a day trip by bus from Glasgow (to the ski road end). Accommodation is available in the nearby villages of Glencoe and Ballachulish, and there is limited accommodation available on-site.Wikipedia

Stayed here during our walk of the WHW. Overall a pretty decent campsite with superb views. It included a cozy pub. However, showers and toilets were only reasonably clean. Friendly staff and not expensive.
A sensational and iconic mountain with a great cafe, chairlift and even some accommodation. Nicely situated on the West Highland Way route and if you're lucky enough to visit whilst there's snow you're onto a true winner.
I used the wc facilities and the cafe for lunch. Lovely relaxed ambience, food was great and toilets were good. A nice wee place for a pit stop. I noticed the camping pods and would certainly consider a stay over here. Great base for exploring the surrounding mountains.
Definitely worth the visit. Landscape is extraordinary. Went up a hiking track ans the view was superb. They have bike tracks also and a nice place to have a snack at the bottom. It's cash only though so be prepared. Would definitely recommend
Absolutely enjoyed it here, stayed in microlodge for one night, lovely n warm, facilities were good and cafe for breakfast nice and cheap, cant wait to go back, just wish cafe open bit earlier but other than that was brilliant. And superb views.
