Glenbranter is how I envisage my Heaven ..on many occasions during this walk I heard the ghost's from the past whisper ....lone walkers will understand this ..the peace and the tranquility ...the smell of the forest the tinkling on the streams WOW , a truly wonderful place . Sunday 27th ….Pucks glen.Deservedly the most popular short walk in the region, Puck's Glen is a dark and atmospheric defile. A tumbling burn, criss-crossed by bridges, is enclosed by rocky walls heavily hung with mosses and overshadowed by dense trees. No doubt we will arrange something for Saturday night entertainment ...more to follow on this . There are many options for staying over and I'm sure if people get together there are deals to be had.
