The Glen More road is generally considered to be from where the A849 enters the Forestry Commission plantation west of the Strathcoil turn off to Loch Buie and right along that road to the west at the eastern end of Loch Beg.
Much of the original plantation immediately west of Strathcoil has been harvested in recent years opening up new views.
The first section of the road is overlooked by Beinn Bheàrnach to the north before entering another plantation that straddles the road as it climbs uphill. The road is dominated in the north by Beinn A’ Mheadhain, Corr-Bheinnand then Ben More itself.
The River Lussa runs south of the Glen road to where it enters Loch Sguabain and then on into Lochs, An Ellein, Àirde Glais via Gearr Abhainn channel.
There is an excellent off-road viewpoint at Clach Sguabain overlooking the Lochs with Ben Buie to the south-west and Creach-Beinn to the south-east.
The Coladoir River runs to the south adjacent to A849, through Glen More and on down to where it joins the sea at Loch Beg after passing under the current and old road bridges.
The Glen More road has a wealth of different views which in turn change continually with the weather. It is quite common to be passing through heavy rain in the Glen whilst seeing sunshine in the distance and vice versa.
The A849 is a fast road and in the summer months carries many coaches and goods vehicles. There are a few places to pull right off the main road, but caution is advised when doing this.
Glen More is a superb area with sightings of raptors and deer quite common.
