Easy climb and nice views of tayside and fife.

Nice walk if you are looking for a short walk. Paths quite narrow and have been created by people just walking the trail. Can imagine the path can be quite slippy when it is poor weather

Good walk, white bridge is out, so you have to walk the green bridge route (longer route)

My husband and I hiked this on our first trip to Scotland and having never climbed! We were unprepared for the the incline and it took us about 3 hrs longer than most (9 hrs). we didn't do the loop but went up the valley and back the same route as we only wanted to get to Bidean Nam Bian. The trail was well marked except what small sections that were under snow (In May) the trail is laid with stones and is like being on a stair climber. The view was amazing the whole way and well worth how sore I was for 3 days after. There is a near vertical climb to get to the top (or back down depending on your route) that was surprisingly easy. I cannot wait to go back and do it again and hit all three of the sisters, but will be much more in shape!

Very enjoyable walk! We walked up in January on quite a sunny day, going left at the start. My friend lost his phone when he fell on slipped on the way down one of the hills, but managed to find it again and all that time it took, by the time we got to the next Munro, the sun was setting and it was beautiful. I stated to get a bit worried because the sun was going down and the way down looked very steep(It is) but my friends were content with sliding on some ice. But thank goodness we left when we did as the small path down was covered in Black ice, if we left any later one of us would surely have injured ourselves. That being said probably a better idea to not turn off to the left at the start and do the walk the other way round.

I love this walk, have done it around 4 times now with my other half and dog. Its relatively easy until you hit the 'main' road up to Drymen, then it gets steep but its not for so long. Stunning scenery all along it.

My local park is a relaxing way to spend an hour walking around. The flowers, are not only beautiful but smell lovely on a dry summery day. Its also home to the award winning rose garden which is updated and well kept. The open fields have plenty of space for a dog to run. The baseball field at the top is also a good place for a game of rounders.

Found this place while just driving around while on vacation. There is a road to the right that a lot of people were hiking, so I assumed that was the right trail. I think that was just a service road and/or a bike trail. It never really seemed to to turn into a legitimate hiking trail. I never saw an outlook either. There is a trail to the left of the sign at the trailhead that looked more like a hiking trail. I wish I’d had more time to venture that way, but I didn’t get there till pretty late and even later after I looped the service road. Then, I wasn’t prepared for night hiking.

A great walk to the West of Edinburgh bordering the zoo with fabulous views to the City and The Castle etc and all corners of The Lothians.

Considering the size of the park it does have a lot to offer. There are three wildlife ponds where you can see ducks and swans. I have also personally spotted many grey squirrels, rabbits and mice. On the right day you may also see bees and butterflies. There is a synthetic football pitch, three bowling greens and a large disc golf course. I've also spotted what I believe to be a basket ball court of some description although I'm not 100% certain. There are public toilets open from May to September at the bowling pavilion. There are benches throughout the park and paving and ramps making it suitable for wheelchairs and strollers. There is also a play-park for children, can't say I've used it myself because I'm a good decade or two too old but the kids that are young enough seem to enjoy it. I would give it a strong 4/5 given how strongly it exceeded my expectations.

Amazing views, really enjoyable hike

Nice for a run or walk. Fairly flat. Dry paths. Large majority covered by trees. Very enjoyable on a nice day.

We did the hike clockwise. Quite steep off the bat all the way to the peak. It got increasingly more windy as we approached the top to where we could barely stand in some parts. In general the hike had everything - challenging parts, easier portions, parts in tree cover, parts exposed, and wonderful views all around. I would love to do this hike again soon. Highly recommend.
