Loch Lee and waterfalls circuit, Glen Esk

A fantastic circuit of Glen Lee taking in pretty Loch Lee and then climbing steeply past the Falls of Unich and the Fall of Damff to cross open moorland and descend the track on the Shank of Inchgrundle. A shorter, less strenuous walk would be to visit the first waterfall and return the same way.


Good tracks, rough path, boggy moorland with faint path.

Public Transport

Very limited (school bus times only) bus from Brechin. Traveline Scotland.
