“Walks to suit all tastes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

There are many glens in Angus offering a range of walks in spectacular Scottish scenery. Opportunities exist for relatively gentle walks along the lower levels in some glens, while others can provide greater challenges in the surrounding higher hills. Underfoot conditions vary considerably, and good walking shoes or boots are recommended, as is good outdoor clothing.

As well as the spectacular scenery, there is quite a range of wildlife to be spotted, eg., red and roe deer, mountain hares, grouse, buzzards, red kites, sparrowhawks, and more!

If you enjoy walking and the great outdoors, you won't be disappointed with the Angus glens.

“Angus Glens, Glen Doll, Corrie Fee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Take the single track road from the Glen Clova Hotel, this is signposted as having no passing places, but having driven extensivley in Scotland this road is no worse, and possibly better than most
Drive three miles and you reach the mountain rescue centre, which has parking (pay - small fee only) a small visitors centre (no refreshments) and tollets and picni area.
There are approximately 6 signposted walks from the base all of varying levels.We took the walk to Corrie Fee, which is approx 5 - 6 mile round trip.

The path leads mainly throuhg forest, but it is a proper road and the walking is easy - but a gradual incline all the way up - so be prepared.

There are various information posts along the route and the secenery is great

On reaching the end of the forest the path leads to the start of Corrie Fee, a natural ampitheatre, and the views are stunning, the walk continues on through the glen and appears to get a bit more challenging. We walked to the middle of the glen and the about turned back to the base.

The walk down is as nice as the walk up as you appreciate the scenery - and downhill all the way !!
