Really beautiful and weather had been dry so was ok for my 6yr old. Stunning in a gorge. You have 3 different walks to do, you can do the hill top, Black gates and forest walk.

This Scottish treasure is a very short drive from Dunoon town centre and is the most scenic and mesmerising walk you'll ever take! Enclosed by rocky walls covered with mosses and shadowed by enchanting trees, dark and mysterious - it's a real treat!

Had a great walk around Puck's Glen, very easy to find as it is opposite Benmore Gardens. It was a bonus because the weather had been fine so it was very good under foot. I can imagine the waterfalls would be spectacular if there had...More

For my 10-year-old son, I played up the talk of elves/faeries living in these woods. But for you, dear reader, I will simply say this: I've been on hundreds of hikes on three continents. None of them had the unique character of this intimate walk...More

We did this walk one very warm day, so it was a welcome walk in the shade. The views are stunning, the waterfalls are just something. We walked up the hill first and up the waterfalls, then around the mountain at the top and back...More

This is a fairly steep walk up a narrow glen alongside a torrent of water (depending on rainfall!) coming down. Definitely not one for wheelchairs or the infirm - unless to go to the path at the bottom and then look up in longing. We,...More

Tip. Walk down past the chalets and follow signs up to pucks glen. Fantastic woodland walk with waterfalls. You need good footwear. We went during a dry spell and there were parts where it was slippery so if it has been wet, would imagine you...More
