This daywalk explores the once industrially exploited but today very beautiful and peaceful Glen Leven, including a visit to the bleak and impressive Blackwater Dam.


Good paths and tracks for most of the walk, short sections of path require care when wet. The section of the walk below the dam is pathless and rough.

Public Transport
