Very happy and friendly staff. Wonderful walk up the paths. Many hundreds of great photos taken. Recommended.

Glen Lyn Gorge has some stunning scenery, we had a lovely walk up the valley which took about 30 minutes stopping at view points along the way. The only downside was that the top half was closed for maintenance work, which I know is a...More

Really nice walk - bit steep in places - but worth it! Plenty of places to sit and rest up! Some interesting history about the local lifeboat.
