pucks glen is a fantastic short walk.as there was not many reports on this walk i decided to do a report to help anybody else see this place as this is a wee gem.with a well maintained path.i would walk along from carpark to the stone bridge and start the walk into the glen from there as louise and i went up over wooden bridge and descended the steps into it.it has waterfall after waterfall and gives you a feel for being in a place thats not been touched with the walls all covered in moss.alot of work has been put in to make it possible to walk all the way to the top of the glen.eventually you come to aroad sign posted upper and lower pucks glen.we continued on to the upper pucks glen section and glad we did as it was also as nice.eventually you come out on the hillside and it was at this section we made a decision to go back,but do we find a different route back down as there are other routes or go back down pucks glen,,well we just had to go back down as iy was well worth the trek back down.it was a long drive to get there for a short walk but we made it up by visiting benmore gardens which is just up the road.hope this helps anyone wanting to visit pucks glen.
