We walked Glen Esk, Clova, Doll and Isla in a week. It is so beautiful and so quiet and such an unspoilt part of Scotland. Great walking but dont tell anyone!

Glen Clova , Glen Prosen and Glen Doll are all dramatic areas just a couple of hours away from Scotland's Central Belt. Although popular with walkers looking to bag a Munro the glens are peaceful and a world away from the busier tourist hotspots in...More

We had a absolutely superb walk along the side of the reservoir and it was a relatively easy walk with great views. There were a few cyclists and it is possible to walk round the reservoir although in parts it is not quite so easy.

With all this wonderfully warm and sunny weather in Scotland, there is just nowhere better to experience the vast untarnished views afforded by all the Angus Glens .. and Glen Clova in pretty particular. A short run, cycle or walk in any of the Glens...More

There are several glens, each with their own characteristics and experiences. Starting in the east, Glen Esk (accessed near Edzell) is popular with walkers and has a number of shooting estates. The little village of Tarfside, just over half way up the glen, has the...More

Lovely picturesque glens but unfortunately there’s no parking until you get to the end of the glens. Glen Clova is a bit better than the others but many other Scottish glens have many pull offs n paths from them. It’s such a shame that there’s...More

If you have friends or family visiting from the city a trip up to the glens is essential and make a stop at Blackwater dam - the air is fresh and clean. I don't think there is anywhere else that's so lush and green

Questions & Answers

Hi, my name is Rachael and I am using my partners account to ask a few quick questions regarding Glen Clova. I notice a huge characteristic of this splendid location are the tall trees - I am an amateur photographer as well as my partner, we are consistently learning new things and I can see a huge potential for catching some decent and bold sunrays/sunbeams through the trees. I was wondering whether anyone had witnessed this in this location, I appreciate the weather conditions have to be correct in order for nature to show this spectacular scene but if anyone has seen this fabulous event I would like to know the time of year and whether it was a morning or afternoon? (Although I think morning would be most likely). My last question is whether any of you have managed to take photos like this and if so, whether there is a chance of showing me. I just love nature, especially sunbeams, I think they are majestic and beautiful. Any advice is greatly appreciated, thank you. :o)
