Walks with wow factor - what are your favourites?
Walks with wow factor. What are your favourites?
I spend a lot of my spare time out of doors walking and enjoying some of Scotland's finest scenery.
Here are some of my favourites:
Creag an Tuirc, Balquhidder
- A short uphill hike towards Kirkton Glen from Rob Roy's grave and you'll see a diversion off the main path to the right which will take you to the ancient rallying point of the Clan MacLaren - Creag an Tuirc. The views down over Loch Voil and Balquhidder are spectacular. It takes little effort to get there but the reward is great when you do.
Ben A'an, Trossachs
- A small rocky hill masquerading as a mountain with some of Scotland's finest views of Loch Katrine and beyond.
Dun na Cuaiche, Inveraray
- A steep climb uphill from the castle grounds rewards with amazing views down over Inveraray Castle, the town of Inveraray and Loch Fyne. The sort of spot you'll want to linger to soak up the view.
Ruined Village of Ormaig, Isle of Ulva
- A moderate hike over at times boggy and rough terrain but the views from the ruined clearance village are amongst the best I've ever seen. There's a haunting sadness to the clearance ruins but the place has a beautiful, calm air to it too - Magical.
Corrie Fee, Glen Clova
- The woodland walk to Corrie Fee from the ranger station car park at Glen Doll is pretty dull, viewless and uninspiring but this is quickly forgotten when you enter the dramatic rocky amphitheatre that is Corrie Fee. The first glimpse of it will make your jaw drop. In summer it's a riot of delicate alpine flowers and purple heather. North Berwick Law, North Berwick
- A short, easy climb, rocky towards the summit but 360 degree panoranic views of East Lothian and the Firth of Forth towards Fife. If you're lucky you may even spot the Exmoor Ponies that live on the law.
These are just a few of my many favourites as the list is endless.
I'd love to hear about your favourites Scottish walks with rewarding wow factor views.
