There was a nice walk round the trail here with the best bit the actual glen. A beautiful shaded spot down between high mossy rock walls. Cool and green and nice to sit and watch the river flow by. It was nice and quiet.

Lovely place to walk. Some steep steps/rocks but the Glen is a lovely spot to take photos. Walked along the river afterwards too.
