Whether you take the path from the village or park half way up, you're going to get your heart pumping. Either with the exercise or the spectacular scenery. Remember the camera. Well worth a couple of hours. We've been in all types of weather and...More

Beautiful walk with lovely scenery especially in October. I think we managed to do it back to front which meant it was quite steep but was definitely worth it.

Stunning atmosphere, especially after it had been raining and autumn colours on tree were intensified. Lush green ferns and a torrent of water rushing down the gorge, very dramatic scenery. Unfortunately left my camera at home, only phone pics. Would definitely visit no matter what...More

Pretty well laid out route up the glen to Castle Campbell with steps in steep places. Really picturesque . Well worth the effort. Parking available at start of walk.

A lovely walk through Dollar Glen back to the car park, the scenery was stunning with waterfalls and gorges. Would need to wear suitable footwear and there are a lot of rocks

This is a great hike with steep inclines. Wouldn't recommend after a rain would be too slick. The surrounding area is stunning to take in.
