Firstly, the lady in the cottage who acts as gatekeeper was truly fantastic, issuing us a pass and allowing us access to the Glen. It's so critical that people are present who will continue to maintain access to these precious spaces for all- they do...More

This was a return visit the last time was 30years ago. But the Glen is just stunning especially this time of year and ideal for those that wish to get out in the FRESH AIR.

The fact that this glen has limited access is what makes it so perfect, especially in the high season when other places are so busy. It is perfectly peaceful and the landscapes are the best of anywhere we have been. If you go the entire...More

The beauty and serenity of the glen never cease to amaze us. The restriction on the number of cars that can visit per day enhances the experience to the point you think you are the only people there, besides the herds of deer.
