Magical, Enchanting Forest Walk, Loch Lomond & Dumbarton Castle Experience

Enjoy a forest walk through the enchanting Puck's Glen on the Cowal Peninsula, Argyllshire. This is a must do visit in which you will experience criss-cross bridges, waterfalls and rock pools. Re-energise with a short break at a local tearoom before travelling on to the "Rest and be Thankful" for a photo opportunity. A short drive from here we will travel to the bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. In the afternoon we will conclude the tour with a visit to Dumbarton Castle. Another climb with over 300 steps to the top for some terrific panoramic views of the Clyde Estuary before returning to your hotel/accommodation.

Damp day, but we enjoyed a lovely day walking around the gardens. Great views, handy map and plenty of locations to keep the kids focussed. Cafe okay.

Went to gardens today with my husband. Could not believe the colours at the pond. Also climbed right to top viewpoint. Amazing scenery. Autumn is my favourite season and my goodness I wasn’t disappointed. Great visit

Benmore has the most impressive variety of trees and ferns. I think it would be breathtakingly stunning in May with its vast array of rhododendron. There were easy routes and steeper routes. Between the two of us, we covered them all during our visit.

Lovely walk around the many paths and trails around the garden, lots of trees and plants and interesting points to read about in the different areas of the garden. Beautiful scenery high up from the lookout points. Give yourself plenty time to walk the vast garden, lots of benches around to sit and enjoy a moment and take in the garden.
