This walk is complementary to Walk 555. They are both short...why not do the lower first, then the upper?

A short climb from the car park takes you to a viewpoint; from there you soon pass through The Cathedral, a planting of old beeches. After a circular walk through beeches and natural woodland, the track gradually descends the west wall of the valley to cross the Moniack Burn (interesting old bridge here and a grotto built early 19th Century following upon a visit to Italy by the Frasers, who owned the estate). Then after passing Dughall Mor(the tallest tree in Britain) the path climbs again, on to the east slope of the valley, to finish the walk.

The glen is very sheltered, which has enabled the imported Douglas Firs to grow freely to their present height; it also enables a sheltered walk in bad weather. The Reelig Glen walks are very popular, attracting an average of 12,000 visitors annually.
