    Breath taking
    Absolutely spectacular scenery! It didn’t feel real, it was like a movie set! This is decent walk and has free ample parking. It is best to follow the trail clockwise so that you are climbing up the waterfalls and walking down the forest paths! Make sure you have suitable footwear as it is slippy and uneven at times. Our family will cherish the memory of our time spent here and I for one will never forget this place! There is nothing else to say but just go and see this for yourself if you are able to!

    Gem in the woods
    Pucks Glen is an absolute gem. A light bit of exercise climbing to the top but fully worthy when you follow the magical stream down to the bottom. Astonishing views, magic around every twist and turn. Take time to look at the views behind you. Might not be suitable for those unsteady on your feet especially in the wet.

    Magical fairy glen
    Pucks glen is a beautiful and magical place to visit, it's so tranquil and peaceful. It takes about an hour to walk the full circuit or you can take the short cut which cuts it in half. We did the circuit clockwise but If we were to return be would probably do it anticlockwise as it is quite steep in some places. It's definitely somewhere I'd love to again, possibly after the rain, as we visited on a very dry day.

    Lovely scenic walk with great views, lots waterfalls and wildlife. Was bit slippery underfoot the time of year we went and the wet weather we have had towards end of the year. Could have been signposted better as once at the top was bit confusing where other roads led. Amazing views of Holy Loch @ Dunoon. Unfortunately Botanic garden was closed for the season so struggled to get a hot drink on our decent which would have topped the day off well. An experience well worth a visit.

Puck's Glen is a must-see if in the area. To be able to wander through the Glen and enjoy a magical, natural experience is quite something in this age of instant pleasure on demand and technology. A visit out of season is recommended to avoid the crowds.

An absolutely stunning walk. We regularly walk/hike but for me it’s usually somewhat begrudgingly! I saw the photos and reviews on trip advisor and couldn’t resist suggesting it as it’s only a relatively short walk, however has some of the most incredible scenery I have ever seen. We couldn’t believe how green everything was, it was like something out of Jurassic World or Lord of the Rings. We did the red walk and walked clockwise as per some earlier reviews as I was slightly tentative being that I’m 30 weeks pregnant with a dodgy pelvis! I put my support band on and managed it no problem, just taking my time. There are quite a few stone stairs towards the end, and towards the top of them there was one marker to either turn left farther along the gorge over bridges, or go right and higher up. We consulted the map and decided to go higher up some more stairs which it turns out was the right way. At the very top of the stairs we also then came across a bench and 2 red route markers, one leading uphill and one to the forest. We saw a couple we’d seen earlier coming from the hill towards the forest and checked that we were now heading down, which turned out to be the right way. The top route was closed for logging but I didn’t fancy anymore uphill waddling by this point so it’s maybe for the best!
I can’t say how long it took as I lost track of time, but is only 2 miles so wouldn’t take the average non-pregnant person very long! We did stop to take lots of photos along the way too, and my 7 year old asked if we could do it again as even he was in awe at the surroundings. Highly recommended.

It's a bit of a climb to the top of Puck's Glen, but then you descend into it and is it wonderful. Waterfalls. Narrow. Ferns and Lichens. Gave it 4 stars because the bottom part of it was closed because on unsafe bridge, and that looked just as good as the top half.

Absolutely stunning place to explore. There’s quite a lot of steps. (According to my watch we did 33 flights, but we did double back.) Really cannot overstate the beauty of this place. Used to think Plitvice Lakes in Croatia was the most beautiful thing we’d seen but Puck’s Glen gives it a run for its money. Thankfully we had gorgeous weather. This is an absolute must-see if you’re in the area.

It was a great hike to the top if you go straight from the carpark. On way back down follew the stairs at the bench and itll lead you to the waterfall. Go left from carpark and its a shorter hike to the waterfall and pool. It's absolutley beautiful, a magical place to visit.

We did the gorge walk in a clock wise direction and it was lovely. It took about an hour and a half with 11&8 yo and and a senior. Doing the walk in a clock wise direction meant the steepness of the walk wasn’t so obvious and you had the amazing scenery and steps to distract you. Would suggest walking boots and quite steep on the ascent with lose gravel.
