Every year we visit this awesome site. There are 2 smallish car parks and we have never not got a space. A leisurely (approx 1 mile) walk along the stream gives you the most stunning scenery with loads of birds along the way. We also...More

So beautiful and peaceful here. Wellies are a must to borrow. Would recommend you visit. Not for mobility restricted people. The cafe is lovely and clean and the panini was yummy.

Lovely walk and not too steep except for climbing up to the waterfall. Lovely trees and lots of interesting birds around like dippers and birds of prey

We visited the Glen on Saturday and were so pleased that we did. We took the forest route to the falls which was so picture perfect... The woodland was beautiful and peaceful... I found myself taking many deep breaths of delight. We reached the top...More
