So Loch Etive isn’t technically Glencoe. But, for most people, Glen Etive and Glen Coe are one and the same and that is why I have included it within our Glencoe Elopement Photography section so bear with us!
One of the most amazing Glens in Scotland (and there are quite a few!) Glen Etive is right next to Glen Coe. The most photographed mountain in Scotland, Buachaille Etive Mor, stands proud guarding the entrance to the Glen. Famous for being the location of Skyfall in the James Bond film of the same name as well as one of the filming locations for Braveheart starring Mel Gibson. Loch Etive stands right at the end
To get here, turn left just past the Kinghouse House Hotel on the A82. Please note that Glen Etive is a no-through road with no amenities such as shops or petrol stations so make sure you are prepared before heading down here. Keep driving to the very end of the road to a small car park. This small car park is right next to the Loch side as such making it the perfect place to get married if walking a long way is an issue!
Please note that this is a very small car park and a very popular place. In the height of summer, it may not be possible to get parked here so please bear this in mind when booking your elopement.
There are plenty of wild deer in the Glen and you are likely to see them all year round. We do not recommend feeding the door or attempting to take a photo close by to the deer.
