Duration: about 1.5 hours
A very enjoyable walk through lovely woods to the Devils Glen waterfall, returning alongside the river through the glen.
Path through woods
- Turn off the R763 into the entrance of the Devils Glen woods and drive for about a mile to the car park. At the entrance to the car park itself is a noticeboard with a map of the woods. Starting from this noticeboard, bear right and follow the clearly visible path into the woods.
- After a short distance, on the right you’ll see some overgrown steps (see photos below) leading up to a rocky outcrop – a short detour is in order for the view.
Steps to view point
Plaque on steps
- Returning to the main path, follow the path through the woods to eventually reach the Devils Glen waterfall. The path is clearly marked and easy to follow. Note rock arch (see below) about halfway along the path, and various pieces of artwork on the way.
- Return initially along the same path, but on reaching a fork bear left to stay by the river and return to the car park via a different route from that coming out. A couple of the sculptures along this route are shown below.
