Woodland Trust Glen Finglas: Balqhuidder to Brig o’ Turk

A superb remote walk in dramatic scenery on an old drover’s route from Balquhidder to Brig o’ Turk via picturesque Glen Finglas. The walk along the glen is delightful following the Allt Glen nam Meann as it flows towards the Glen Finglas reservoir. This linear walk in the heart of the Trossachs is along moorland paths and tracks (boggy in places) and accompanied by two experienced guides who’ll enlighten you with some of the stories associated with the place.

None specified.

1. Risk.
The nature of hill walking potentially involves leaders or other participants in providing close assistance to others. For everybody’s protection those people classified as ‘vulnerable adults’ or young people under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. No special arrangements are available to provide independent supervision for vulnerable people, and the accompanying carer takes full responsibility for them. The carer or parent is best placed to judge the capability of their charges.

2. Children.
We do ask that you only bring children on a walk if you are confident that they will be able to complete it comfortably. At all times, children must be accompanied by an appropriate adult who must take full responsibility for them.

3. Lower age limits.
No children under the age of 16 are allowed on Extra Hard or Hard walks. Children over the age of 12 are permitted on Medium and Easy walks provided that they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

4. Dogs.
In common with other similar events and in consideration for others, dogs are not allowed (guide dogs excepted).

5. Smoking.
Please do not smoke on walks, out of consideration to others.
