An evening walk

we walked from our hotel to the Forest Park. Walked up to the path for over an hour and the views were amazing.

The weather was good, but we arrived late in the day - too late to start the walk. The next day, we had lost the weather and couldn't even see it, so for us, there was no point in climbing it - we like a visual reward for our effort. Anyway, if your weather is poor, there are some short... More

I did this walk the day after Ben Lomond having enjoyed that Munro, and thinking the cobbler would be a easier as it isn't as high. I was wrong! Admittedly the weather was better when i did Ben Lomond whereas on the cobbler it was drizzly and a little windy. The path is pretty easy for about two thirds of... More

After dropping off the car very easy at a parking for 1 pound/day at the start of the hike, we started our climb. The first part (30 - 45 min) is, plainly said, boring. Its just a wide zigzag path up the hill. Once you are passed that, you get a very nice view of your surroundings. From here on... More

It wasn't a walk in the park. But really beautiful. We kinda lost our way. But enjoyed it. Even if it was raining and there was a lot of fog. It must've even more beautiful, if you can enjoy the view

Nice steady climb until you are near the top- then it gets a bit tougher, especially if it's raining. Lovely views at the top

Stunning area that captures the essence of this incredible country called Scotland!! Roads can be dangerous with a lot of idiot drivers prepared to take too many risks but as long as you're careful you'll be fine. In any case the scenery makes the travel worthwhile in the extreme!!

Easy to follow route. Quite a steep climb through a forest to the valley but worth it. Good path to follow after. A leisurely 3 1/2 hour climb up and down.

Did not know much about this walk before we started, but the further we got the better it became. The views once you get above the forest are amazing and the final climb makes it all worthwhile. A popular route, so expect some traffic and passing people. The track is being repaired in places, so was a bit muddy and... More

This was the best part of my trip, the place is breathtaking. The beauty is incredible, I actually stopped taking pictures as the camera could not do justice to such beauty. Come with your family for a peaceful day out
