This wild and wonderful, secluded valley is a must for anyone visiting the Scottish Highlands. It is protected by a locked gate that keeps car number to a manageable level. I have never seen so many stags in the one place. It is reputed to be the most beautiful glen in the Highlands, and I won't argue. We were the... More

It is hidden away far from the madding crowd - a private glen allowing only 25 cars daily through the padlocked gates - we were lucky if we saw half a dozen cars when we visited! A stunning drive up to the top of the glen via an ever changing landscape painting of beauty- you can get out and walk... More

This is a hidden gem .The most spectacular scenery you can find, excellent wild life. A good selection of walks / cycling available to suit all. The only down side is midges so go prepared ! But don't let them put you off.

Firstly, the lady in the cottage who acts as gatekeeper was truly fantastic, issuing us a pass and allowing us access to the Glen. It's so critical that people are present who will continue to maintain access to these precious spaces for all- they do not deserve to be hidden away amongst the estates of the absurd. Right, access rant... More

Cycled down to Monar Lodge from the Cnoc Hotel then headed along the lochside to climb An Sidhean - fantastic what an area! A great area for cycling, walking, birdwatching or fishing!!
