We all love stories, magical stories. Tales about fairies, elves and enchanted lands. These mysterious and magical places make our imagination run wild. Normally you can’t enter them but there are places where you can and magical creatures existence is apparent.
One of those places must be Puck’s Glen in Argyll which is a part of The Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
We visited the Puck’s Glen last year while on a trip through Cowal and Arrochar Alps. We have been really excited to visit this place since we heard a lot about his place. In the folklore, Puck is clever, mischievous elf, sprite or jester that likes to cause trouble.
It also appearing in Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
The circular walk starts at the carpark and there are two directions to choose from as your starting point. You c an start at the bottom of the glen and climb up or at the top and go down.
We have chosen the second option because it seems easier as the way up can be steep at times.
We could not help to notice that Puck Glen looks similar to Dollar Glen Walk.
Absolute silence surrounded us while we went down the deep, woodland gorge, The path was narrow and wet sometimes the water was crossed by a wooden bridge. The sound of the stream with many drops and waterfalls combined with dark and deep forest gave this place amazing fairy atmosphere.
This is a lovely, beautiful short walk that you will surely love as much as we did. It takes around an hour to complete and is steep at times so you will need to watch those little explorers, but it’s still not a challenging walk, but proper shoes will help.
