Enjoyable and manageable family cycle up the glen; its a decent length of run (c45 km) so bring lunch/ snack and water. Road is technically closed to cars so makes for a more relaxed cycle (& you park close by). A taste of the highlands...More

A beautiful Glen. I'd love to walk there. When I visited I was driving.... It's only open at certain times so check it out first!

Entrance is by ticket from the gatekeeper. Beautiful 15 mile drive brought amazing wild countryside. Red deer easily seen. Loch Monar at the far end is spectacular and there is good walking along the shore paths.

It is hidden away far from the madding crowd - a private glen allowing only 25 cars daily through the padlocked gates - we were lucky if we saw half a dozen cars when we visited! A stunning drive up to the top of the...More
