Walk: Signal Rock and An Torr Woodland. The Devil's Staircase and return
Start Point: Ann Torr car park. Altnafeadh    
Distance: 1.7 miles, 2.4 miles Ascent: 500 feet, 750 feet
Time: 1 hour, 1.25 hours
Weather: Windy with intermittent light showers
Comments: We called at Glencoe Village memorial before continuing on to the Glencoe Visitor Centre - a very comprehensive and pleasant facility. The An Torr woodland walk was on a good path but Signal Rock was disappointng as it was surrounded by trees. We continued on to walk to the top of the Devil's Staircase, part of the West Highland Way that we did 11 years ago. To finish off we went on to Kingshouse Hotel for a late lunch.
