Parallel Roads of Glen Roy

This short but rough walk has excellent views of the famous Parallel Roads which stand out as horizontal ridges on both sides of the Glen. There is not a path for the whole route so navigation skills are required.


Rough path with short steep section; then a pathless, often wet section over heather and finally stony track and minor road.

Public Transport

No public transport to start, nearest bus and train at Roybridge.


Glen Roy car park and viewpoint. Open start point in Google Maps for directions.
