Route Description

There is a carpark marked Puck's Glen, south of the start. The path itself is waymarked.

OS Landranger sheet 56 (Loch Lomond & Inverraray area)

Heritage Information

This waymarked path was created by the Younger family who onetime owned the Benmore Estate and it originally lead to a folly on the hill which is now in the Botanic Garden. The path follows a natural gorge, with dramatic overhanging cliffs and a series of roaring waterfalls. It passes through mixed woodland planted by the estate in 1870 and still has the wonderful, wild, romantic atmosphere so much enjoyed by the Victorians. Although the paths were neglected for many years and became unsafe, in the mid 1980s they were repaired by the Forestry Commission with help from the Manpower Services Commission who put in steps, new bridges and drainage ditches - with thanks to Mary Welsh and Christine Isherwood "Walks in Argyll & Bute" (2003).
