Saw what looked like an interesting glen whilst studying maps and was surprised not to find any walk reports covering it. Even google didn't bring much up at all. Decided to investigate it anyway ....first couple of hours were fairly standard scenery, then things took a step up and I was amazed at how enjoyable the walk was and how impressive the scenery was. Thought I'd end up doing an out-and-back walk, but I kept going past the time I should have turned around, and fortunately managed to climb out of the glen and head back a more direct (but less beautiful) way than the full return route would have ended up. Then I discovered you're not meant to advertise it?! So there goes my walk report. Longer than I expected, and certainly more up and down, but all worth it.
