A great little hike around the stunning Puck's Glen & Dumbarton Castle


If you're looking to get right out there and explore Scotland in a day this is perfect for you!

This is a day for people with good fitness as it's a moderate hike and proper footwear is required.

Puck's Glen is a stunning forest covered in most with an air of enchantment about it as you walk the path and climb the ancient steps as they wind around the most beautiful waterfalls you will think you have been transported back to the time of myths & legends the deep chasm, its walls covered in dripping moss and with a canopy of trees overhead, is otherworldly and magical. If this is one of the best short walks in Scotland, if not Europe!

Bringing your camera is a must for this tour as the shots you will get are ones you will want to frame.

Afterwards, we will stop at the Rest Be Thankful for pictures & then if time permits lunch at the Drovers Inn est 1705 before heading to Dumbarton Castle on the Rock. Again this is quite a hike and needs good walking shoes.

After all that you can chill as we head home.
