This week we visited Pucks Glen for the first time, and it is even more magical than you could possibly imagine.
Just over 5 miles drive from The Stable Studio, Argyll, Pucks Glen is a river formed ravine and a circular walk of approximately 2.5 miles. The initial ascent is a little steep and some of the terrain is uneven. That said, it is not beyond most people’s capabilities, and there are plenty of places to stop, take a breather and inhale the surroundings. Good walking shoes or boots are recommended though.
There are two main pathways and it is up to you which route you take. One path takes you along a narrow gorge, interwoven with waterfalls and rock pools spanned by arched wooden bridges.
This dark and mysterious trail is enclosed by rocky walls, hung heavy with mosses and overshadowed by tall & dense trees.
The second pathway has a much more relaxed vibe, through lush green foliage with chances to see wide open landscape views. We took the gorge path first and think that was the right decision as you walk up alongside the streams and towards the many stunning waterfalls.
Returning down to the free car park via the other pathway, I can see why Pucks Glen is deservedly the most famous short walk on the Cowal Peninsula.
