This is just a stunning place of natural beauty, the drive to the Glen is fantastic and it is a long and winding road until you get to the final car park. the views on the way are stunning and when you get to the last point the view of the loch is also good.

well worth the drive, although lots of passing places to negotiate and some people just drive a bit to fast.

Take one of the forestry commission leaflets provided at the carparks in order to make the most of your visit. I did all the marked routes and much much more but would say the "River Affric" walk and the "Plodda Falls" walk are the 2 highlights, but ultimately it is ALL stunning.

We were staying at Aigas and came with their ranger. We had been here with them, a few years ago, but forgotten just how beautiful the scenery was.

For most of the afternoon it was raining, so we were in and out of the Aigas van, looking for Wildlife. We saw very distance views of small groups of red deer on the hills and occasionally a stag on the sky line.

At one stage the ranger spotted 2 juvenile golden eagles on the sky line. We jumped from the van and found them with our binoculars. What on earth were they doing? When he got the scope on them, we realised they were ‘playing’ with either a piece of carrion, or perhaps even vegetation (too away to be sure) but one would try to take it from the other while in flight, dropping it in the process,then they would both swoop down to retrieve it, then take to the air again. They were certainly too far away to photograph, but it was lovely to watch them, even at that distance.

As we were heading back along the glen, the sun suddenly escaped from behind the black clouds for a short while and high lighted the wet autumn colours. It was glorious!

When you go, take binoculars if you have them, plus a camera, you won’t be disappointed!

Too much time spent on planes, trains, and in cars, prompted us to get out into the Glen Affric National Nature Reserve; and it was just what the doctor ordered. Being surrounded by the lush green, to hear the sound of birds, smell the evergreens, experience the stunning views, beautiful waterfalls and river all soothe the tired soul. We took the Tweedmouth Trail then connected into the Plodda Falls walk -- a perfect combination taking about an hour. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

We were expecting it to be very busy having read reviews. Guess we were lucky to enjoy the beauty and splender of the Glen in relative peace. Stopped at Dog Falls and had a lovely walk. Stopped at the reservoir and walked out to the middle to take in gorgeous rules. If in the area this cannot be missed. Clearly 5 stars but if you love this then drive Glen Nevis.

Glen Affric is a beautiful place with views and scenery to die for. Dog falls and plodda falls are not to be missed. The area really does take your breath away.

Natural park with a lot of walking trails, gorges, falls, lochs and stunnings views. Besides, there is not much people so, the wild nature is more enjoyable.
