Glen Mama is a wide valley with high mountains alongside. Loch Mama is a terrific place to lunch on a warm day. Although quite an easy walk, you are advised to wear boots - some parts are boggy. The walk sets off from Glen Mama Farm near the main road and climbs through an ancient oak woodland, sadly now much thinner than in former times. The first few hundred yards are a joy for kids because the route crosses the river so many times on bridges, trees, fords and stones (those who don't want to play can stick to one bank - most of the time!) There is a steeper section with rapids and pools before the route crosses the burn again on stepping-stones, before arriving at Loch Mama.

Walked this walk in April after a very rapid thaw with the snow melt turning the river into a torrent. However, we met the farmer at the walk start and he advised us to remain on the left (N) bank and this proved to be good advice as several crossing points were under water. Although this shortened the walk considerably it was still a super outing and we extended it along Loch Mama and Loch na Creige Diubhe.
