Glendevon to Castle Campbell

Castle Campbell.

A gloomy Castle Campbell today 14th February 2010 as the mist hung low on the Ochils!

A super walk though, through from Glendevon to Castle Campbell following an old drove road for cattle heading to Falkirk Market. The Woodland Trust have planted more than 600,000 native trees to try and return the Glen to its original state.

Better planning would have had cars at each end of the walk, but returning by the same route was very pleasant with sunshine warming my back as I stepped into the gloomy valley. Saw a hen harrier disappear in the mist, and the plumage of the wildfowl on the water brightened the day.

I think the Tormaukin Inn should market the walk by providing return transport to the Inn from Castle Campbell. I certainly would!
