A popular walk which takes you along an atmospheric path under the trees and alongside a small stream. It's generally well kept and there are many stairs which meander alongside the water. Be careful - Some of the rocks are slippery! If you go from...More

Scotland is full of interesting places to discover and this is definitely one of my favourites. Worth stopping here and going for a walk. Can be slippy so wear good boots/footwear. Good parking and cafe close by at Benmore gardens.

Second time here with the grandchildren and the dog. Reasonably short circular walk (by joining other paths, it can be made longer), with some steep climbing at the start. Atmospheric walk down the glen. Some steep drops at side of path in places, however, all...More

really impressing landscape with falls in the forest. applicable also in rainy days. there is a parking on A815 with a sign for Pucks Glen. When walking there is a cross in th forest. Take the left into the Glen, not the right.
