I visit here regularly with friends as it's a lovely area to walk and relax. The scenery is lovely over the loch, and sitting looking at it is very therapeutic. The café is handy for a drink and a sandwich or a toilet break.

This is a great park with plenty of walking trails and a number of historic buildings. We climbed up to the temple and the views are terrific. The collegiate church is well worth visiting to see the old tombs and the architecture. The visitor centre...More
