Incredible views

We drove past the sign for the nature reserve and decided spur of the moment to go and have a look and are so glad we did. The views are absolutely stunning - it is well worth a visit!

Amazing views and well worth taking time to see.
The raid leading up to it was a one track road and quite nail biting at times but well worth it.

Interesting and scenic
Jul 2019
The landscape shows aspects of glaciation and erosion and there is an excellent explanatory board. It would be scenic and pleasant to visit even without these.

Wilderness tranquility

If you want some peace and quite with time just to sit back and take it all in, this ticks all the boxes. Not sure how busy it is during the main holiday season,but it’s still worth a visit.

Great geological features to explore snd exciting driving.

I went to view GlenRoy whilst supervising a Duke of Edinburgh group walking through it. It is a stunning place with clear lines of old beaches on the hill side. You can park at the top of the glen and walk beyond the houses to explore terraces where the river has cut different courses at different levels. The glen is a great reminder of the force of nature. You need to drive with care when going up the glen. It is a narrow road with some twists and blind summits. There maybe walkers on the road.

Breathtaking Views

We were actually driving to Stirling when I saw the brown sign and being a little bored of driving decided to investigate. Really glad we did, after a very enjoyable drive down a winding country road we were rewarded with spectacular views over the ice age landscape.

Ice Age
Aug 2018 • Family
We have stayed in Roybridge and have been passing the sign for couple of days when we have finally decided to visit. Although it is only 3 Miles from Roybridge we drove as was not sure what to expect. The views from the top are stunning. There is information about how the nature reserve was formed. My son & I have decided to walk back to Roybridge. Very pleasant easy walk which does not take long at all.

A pleasant surprise
May 2018 • Solo
I convinced my lady to drop me off for a hike here, and it was lovely. Once she drove away, the only things I heard were the wind rushing through my ears, a light rain tapping on my coat, and a cuckoo bird (make of that what you will). The view is stunning, and unlike more spectacular sites in the Highlands, this one was not overcrowded with near-impossible parking. To the contrary, I was the only person there.

This may now be a must-see attraction, but I highly recommend it if you;re in the area. You won't be disappointed.

simple walk

Single carriageway walk through the glen for 5 miles or so for an easy walk. No dedicated off road walks but beautiful views

Impressive nature monument
Aug 2017 • Family
This was way more impressive as we could have imagined. Visible evidence of a glacial Terrain in such a beautiful area, we didn't expected anything like this.
We wandered for hours all on our own, just cows, sheeps, Horses, eagles, deers, ruins and heather all over the place. Scotland as its best.
