I love nature mountain Gulley scene... You can try a big loud shout and the echo is beautiful.

In summer time, Glen Roy is beautiful clear and green.

I bet winter time, it's different view for sure!

It's easy to recognize Glen Roy location, there's a big space for car parking and guidelines board! You will pass few village houses before reach Glen Roy!

I love this place very much!

Having been interested in glaciation since my school days, I stumbled across reference to this landscape feature close to where we were staying in Spean Bridge. After driving along a single lane track for about 3 miles you reach a parking area with an informative explanatory plaque about the Parallel Roads. The scenery is beautiful and the landscape feature easy to make out and clearly explained.

We were staying at Roy Bridge and passed the sign to this ice-age scene every day. I had a spare morning and drove up to the viewpoint which is about 3 miles from the main road.
Worth a side trip, nice viewpoint, great place to stay in a campervan overnight, silent and secluded. Other people parked there to walk around the valley, I just took a few photos and came back. Good information board telling the story of Charles Darwin when he visited (expecting to find sea shells on the ridge lines). Three very distinct lines along the valley sides.

Travel - Scotland, Parallel Roads, by the way you can see the Battle of Mulroy Memorial - it is said that it was the last battle when bows were used - 1688. Parallel Roads is a lay of the land where once upon a time a lake was - at different high, so it made visible lakeside - "roads".
Lodge - Travelodge Fort William - about 15 miles/ 30 minutes
Time - 30 minutes or 3 hrs If you want to go to the summit - It took me about 1:30 to go upon Beinn a' Mhonicag (probably it's its name, but even if not I have a reason to like it;)
spot (parking) - 56°55'40.4"N 4°47'54.3"W
