Challenging enough to feel like you have accomplished something for the day, but short enough to do other things as well. We had the clearest day of 3 weeks in Scotland and could see all the way to Glencoe!

We took the public footpath from the hotel to Moulin, along the side of the golf course, then up the steep section to the top. The views are very good, even on a late November day - they must be spectacular in summer. We returned...More

Very small carpark at the end of Craiglunie Road (holds 3-4 cars if parked well). Single track road so easier to park a bit further away and walk. Well signposted walk. First 1/2 mile is over a golf course so watch for golfers and balls....More
