Glen Sherup And Glen Quay

Forests & Woodlands

    Glen Sherup and Glen Quey are two woodland glens situated in the Ochil Hills, the range of hills which runs between Perth and Stirling.

    Glen Sherup and Glen Quey were acquired by the Woodland Trust in 2000 and 2001 respectively and have since been transformed into a new native woodland development which covers approximately 1,000 hectares.

    Glen Quey is shadowed by Innerdownie Hill and the walk to the summit offers panoramic views of the Forth Bridge to the south east, Tay Bridge and the Grampians to the northeast and the Cairngorms to the north. At the bottom of Glen Quey lies Castle Campbell, traditionally known as the Castle of Gloom.

    Visitors are welcome to walk in Glen Quey and Glen Sherup. Future plans for footpath development will further enhance opportunities and link the two glens including a circular ridge walk with spectacular views, connecting the high tops in Glen Quey via Tarmangie Hill to Cairn Morris Hill and Ben Shee above Glen Sherup.
