A well marked trail, easy enough for nearly all aged, and lots of landscape a and rock-art to satisfy the most demanding traveler. And just try the farmhouse beer and sandwiches after your hike, you will not be disappointed!

This is a very mild walk, and the rock formations are beautiful. But, I was hoping to see more rock art, if I'm honest. There's only one cave with a few paintings. But, the path is very neatly marked out with interesting fact boards, so...More

This has been one of the most moving experiences I have ever had. We set off from the Travellers Rest just outside Clan William, to walk the 5km route around a series of beautifully preserved pictures painted on the rock walls. This is a must...More

A good way to fill a morning walking and seeing rock art. The track is very well signposted and paints very easy to access.

This is an interesting trail across a sometimes slightly demanding path, but the discovery of the rock paintings make it worth its while. They are not all immediately visible, but looking for them makes the path even more rewarding. You will not meet large crowds...More

Don't miss this if you are in the area! Put on your hat, good shoes and bring lots of water. The trail is only 5 km but it will take you 3-4 hours if you want to see the paintings. Everything is clearly marked, you...More

At the Traveller's Rest restaurant/shop. There's a sign on the road - and you park your car and walk from there.
