  • Beautiful Day we didn’t actually see much wildlife but would still recommend this place if you’re into Natural History or not Go .

  • Great place amazing walk 4:30 hours for not very experienced family ( but right gear 😎)
  • Stunning walk up to the lochan at the top. Took us roughly 2 hours to get up from the bottom car park. It’s quite steep at the start but levels out about an hour in. Highly recommend this hike.
