Route Description

Park at The Forestry Commission car park in Glen Doll, north west of Clova, at the end of the single track road.

Head west from the car park, passing the Ranger Station and continue west keeping the river on your left hand side. Pass over a bridge, continue on the forest road with the White Water now on your right. This eventually turns into a path which continues beside the river until reaching the bridge at the top of Glen Doll.

Catch your breath here and enjoy the spectacular views up the glen (keep a look out for deer!) before heading into the trees and descending down Jocks Road. At times this can be a bone shaking (intermediate) challenge. This will eventually exit back onto the forest road and you can retrace your tracks back to the car park.

Route Specific Information:

  • This is an exposed hillside route and you should be suitably equipped and prepared.
  • This is a working forest. Please check the Forestry Commission web site for any access issues in the area.
  • Pop into the rangers station at the car park for advice.
