“Unspoilt rugged nature”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Glen Esk, Glen Clova and Glen Prosen are beautiful at all times af the year, from the gentler countryside of the lower reaches, to the rugged mountainous upper areas. The walking available can not be bettered. In Glen Esk the Retreat museum and restaurant should not be missed - . see details below

“A number of glens worth exploring.”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

There are a fair number of glens that are worth exploring.
I have walked in most, be it in the summer or winter.

I also like to drive through them on my motorbike, they are great biking roads.

“The hills are alive”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

There are at least 2 munros up here but I was so exhausted that the finer points of the hillwalk escaped me. Exhilirating and beautiful. Bring your own food for a picnic and remember to bring all the right gear as the weather can change quickly.

“Explore the Angus Glens”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Often walk the Angus Glens , GlenProsen, Glen Clova and Glen Doll always great to walk through. From Glen Doll you can walk to Braemar or Loch Muick or take the route up to a couple of easy Munros , Driesh or Mayar. Although we have walked many of these routes , by far the easiest and rewarding is the short hike to the Corrie Fee , a round trip of about 5 to 6 miles , just right for a winter walk . The Corrie is spectacular and never fails to impress and will make you gasp as you gaze at its amphitheatre made up of mountains with a waterfall at the fall end. This is a must for all.
Ps Take some goodies with you and then stop at the Glova Hotel for tea and scones.

“Love them”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We used to camp in Glen Clova as kids and visited Glen Isla and Clova for pony trekking. Unfortunately it is no longer around but the hotels are great - the lamb at Clova hotel is a real treat. Super place for a picnic or just a Sunday drive, up one side and down the other - Clova is a firm favourite.
