We did this walk quite late in the day after doing another waterfall walk. It's a beautiful circular walk we saw deer on the hillside, woodpeckers and many birds using our binoculars.

Fantastic wee walk of around 2 miles with great views especially if the river is in spate. At the top end, you can carry on to Kenmore, a further 7 miles or a shorter version a couple of miles further.

This is such an amazing walk. I dod it with my 2 girls (2+6) and they manage it even in the snow. If you are on your own you could probably do the loop in 45mins... Gorgeous all year round...

This is a gorgeous little woodland walk through the Moness gorge where you will encounter Rabbie Burns contemplating the solitude which inspired his poem 'The Birks o’Aberfeldie'.

Walked round here last week. Beautiful scenery. Good information boards which are well worth reading. Recommend good shoes as can be slippy.
