Picnic, climb and spot alpine wildflowers in a spectacular glen carved by ancient glaciers

Glen Doll

Meander through the glen

There’s something for everyone at Glen Doll. Picnic beside the South Esk burn, choose from six scenic trails or head for the amazing natural amphitheatre at Corrie Fee, a National Nature Reserve.

The trails meander beside rushing burns in the valley floor or climb through the woods to breathtaking viewpoints. Watch for climbers exploring the craggy valley sides, golden eagles circling overhead and rare alpine plants that arrived here during the last Ice Age.

Please note, due to extensive forest operations several of the walking trails will be closed. We intend to keep Jocks Road and Corrie Fee hill access paths open and apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Due to repairs on the forest road, Kilbo Path is closed indefinitely. Whilst access to the paths are not restricted, please take extra care and obey all warning signage.
