A short late afternoon walk around one of the more famous walks in the Cowal Peninsula, Pucks Glen, Waterfall route, near Benmore Gardens, just outside Dunoon. Its a popular site of beauty site for the locals and tourists to walk around.

The area is reminiscent of an enchanted kingdom, and leaves walkers with the impression that they may just come across a wood-sprite or other magical creature from the ancient world of Faery.

I was shocked at how clear the paths were considering the amount of snow lately looks like some people were working hard to keep some of the paths clear from snow in places.. :)

Some "useless info" It is named after "Puck" out of "A Midsummer's Nights Dream", a Shakespearean play :)



Winter Photo's Please find below, above is a link you can see the pics from the summer to see the difference...
