Wouldn't bother for £6 per adult! Feel cheated...we've climbed to the top of the gorge many times when our kids were small and stood right at the top looking down onto the waterfall which was great. After many years not doing one of our favourites we decided to do it again but found you could not go all the way... More

There is no doubt that Glen Lyn Gorge is a pleasant place, with some fascinating sights, however on the day we arrived we were told that part of the park was closed as a new tunnel was being created and some of the path's were closed, until 2018! but apparently it was right at the other end of the gorge....

Fist visit to the Glen Lyn Gorge having been to the town many times. Totally enjoyed the beauty and tranquility of the surroundings, our visit was quite late in the afternoon and we are the only people there but we still had time have a slow wonder and take in the surroundings. Some parts of the walk were quite steep,... More

Lovely riverside walk, very pretty scenery. Great to learn how hydraulic power is generated. £6 not bad price but was disappointed that some paths were closed which meant we couldn't access the whole route to the ravine. Still very enjoyable on what was a beautiful sunny day.

We stayed in the accommodation available on site at Glen Lyn Gorge. The main house has apartments on the lower floor and we booked two of these for our family. They are quaint little properties with log fires and 4 poster beds. If you're looking for a modern, fancy hotel this is not it! It's homely, warm and unique. You... More

Visited today and the museum and the walk were OK but not worth the £6 entrance fee. I would suggest half the fee would be fair.

We had a great trip here today. My father in law's mobility scooter had broken so we were looking for somewhere that we could borrow something. Phoned yesterday and booked the tramper for today. They were expecting us when we arrived, he showed us around and we had a brilliant time climbing the gorge, despite the rain! Absolutely fantastic!!!

Not only is this a beautiful location which has access for all including disabled routes it is surprisingly educational. If you bring a lunch its a peaceful place to eat. There are places to sit if you find it difficult to walk up-hill. There are interactive activities for kids (including us big ones), a great introduction to hydro-electric power, the... More

We stopped in here whilst visiting the town, felt that the entrance price was a bit steep, nearly £14 for my partner, 3 year old and myself. The lady on the kiosk was very nice though! The museum was interesting and quite child friendly, the walking was at times a little treacherous underfoot, I had our baby in a carrier... More
