A really enchanting walk up the beautiful little creek. Like a rainforest! Easy to walk, does not need to take more than a couple of hours, but we spent more time constantly taking pictures!

Second time here with the grandchildren and the dog. Reasonably short circular walk (by joining other paths, it can be made longer), with some steep climbing at the start. Atmospheric walk down the glen. Some steep drops at side of path in places, however, all...More

really impressing landscape with falls in the forest. applicable also in rainy days. there is a parking on A815 with a sign for Pucks Glen. When walking there is a cross in th forest. Take the left into the Glen, not the right.

A truly awesome walk, relaxing with so much character you feel like you really are amongst the fairies. Waterfalls and majestic trees. Steep steps in some parts, wear sturdy shoes as its damp on even the sunniest days. Small children will love it! Fantastic views...More
