Glen Doll, Angus, Scotland

Description

Fabulous walking here, with routes of different lengths and difficulty to suit most walkers. If you're lucky enough to be staying nearby, there's probably no reason to go anywhere else.

Walks

Doll Trail

Doll Trail, 90 minutes, 4.5km

The car park is the start of several forest trails, as well as longer footpath walks. More details available at the information hut.

The Doll Walk is an easy 3 mile circular, with a mix of forest and riverside.

Jock's Road is named after Jack Winter, whose challenge to a landowner about access to the path led to this route becoming Scotland's first right of way. It's a longer path between Braemar and Clova - and you'll need a map, compass and proper kit to attempt it!

Directions

See directions from your postcode

From Kirriemuir, take the B955 north to Dykehead and then on through Glen Clova.

At the small hamlet of Clova take the minor road towards Acharn. The Glen Doll car park is at the end of this road. 

(Note: map marker is at Acharn because of clouds on the map)
