Road Directions

Before the Highland clearances in the 18th century, this glen supported 21 different settlements comprising over 350 structures and 25 corn-drying kilns. Today, very little evidence is left of these once busy communities along the single track road that runs from Comrie, through the glen, up to Loch Lednock. Windswept and manmade, the loch is part of the Breadalbane Hydro Scheme and visitors can walk up to the massive dam to view the loch and moorland beyond.

The drive up the glen is picturesque, particularly in autumn when heather clothes the surrounding hills with a purple hue and the bracken on the lower ground turns a deep, rich russet. Wildlife abounds and it is said that the area is a favourite habitat of the shy and elusive Scottish wildcat. In the lower reaches of the glen, there is an excellent 4 mile (6 km) way-marked circular walk through woodland and past dramatic waterfalls.
