Glen Roy is a National Nature Reserve managed by Scottish Natural Heritage.
The ‘Parallel Roads' of Glen Roy slash through the landscape and their straight, precise form makes it easy to see why this glacial leftover baffled scientists for so long. Below you, the River Roy splashes down its rocky course, surrounded by a narrow strip of woodland, and you may hear buzzards mewing overhead.
Facilities include a car park and viewpoint with interpretive panel. There are no formal paths, but the Parallel Roads and other key features are easily seen from the public road.
