Reviewed 8 February 2014

A beautiful walk and a must if you are visiting Gospie. Great opportunity for taking photos especially of the waterfall.

“Delightful walk”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

If you have time as you drive through Golspie the Big Burn Walk is a must do. Beware it can be muddy so please don;t try it with anything less than good waterproof shoes if it has been raining and wellies or boots are probably a better bet. Car park is signposted off the A9 as you leave Golspie heading north. The walk itself is on decent footpaths and across stable wooden bridges and walkways. The burn is lovely with the sound of rushing water constantly in the background and super waterfalls. Possible to do a circular walk, which is always nice and a chance to see the holding pool of the famous Golspie Mill which produces the greatest Oatmeal in the country made famous for its porridge.

“beautiful walk”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

I visited Dornock for a few days and looked up walks before I went around the area...this was one of them...was really lovely...the details I looked up said there were two places to park....we took the track just past the stone making place in Golspie and there was a little parking place there.

you needed to read up on the walk first to get directions otherwise you could miss out on some parts of the walk...I saw a few people walk just to the waterfall and back and so they missed some lovely bist of the walk as there were no proper routes set out...there was a plan at the start of the walk but no leaflets to take with you...after the walk I looked more closely at the plan and noticed there were parts I had missed too.

but it was still really nice...

Been lots of times. Perfect with dogs. Looks like a completely different place during the different seasons. Very pretty.
