Hill Walking

Falls of Holm is a great bed and breakfast base for hill walking enthusiasts visiting the Angus glens. The mountains of the glens of Glen Isla, Glen Prosen, Glen Esk and Glen Clova are all situated close by.

If you are visiting to take part in the walking festival of Kirriemuir (see www.visitscotland.com and www.angusanddundee.co.uk for more information) in late May/early June or for the Blairgowrie festival (www.walkingfestival.org) in late September/early October, Falls of Holm is ideally located to accommodate your stay.

The upper reaches of these glens all lie within the Cairngorm National Park. This is the UK’s largest national park and you will notice the boundary stones at the roadside as you drive into the glens.

There are also a number of trails and paths in this locality on more low level grounds over foot hills, through woods and forests or following the main rivers – the Isla, the Prosen and the South Esk. For inspiration take a look at the suggested walks, here.

For the time-strapped, there is a lovely short walk across our farm and through our wild flower meadow (which teems with insect and birdlife).

Some of our favourite walks include:

  • Ministers walk (Glen Prosen to Glen Clova)
  • Loch Brandy (Glen Clova)
  • Mount Battock (Glen Esk)
  • Mount Blair (Glen Shee)
  • The Cateran Trail
  • Fife Coastal Walks
