Walking and Hiking
Walking and hiking are popular activities here. Walking is great way to enjoy yourself, getting out into the country and hiking.
Glen Mark & Queen’s Well
A fairly easy walk in good weather, leading to the wilder but beautiful Glen Mark at the head of Glen Esk. Visit the ornamental well erected to commemorate a visit by Queen Victoria before return down the glen.
Mountain biking is another popular way of exploring the local area. Feel free to ask for more details if you wish to ride any route.
If you want to get up high and enjoy a bit of solitude on your walks then the most easterly Munro, Mount Keen, is a good place to head.
Escape together on a romantic break here and we reckon it will deepen your love for each other, and you’ll fall head over heels for the landscape too
Loch Lee and the waterfalls
This walk visits Loch Lee and then climbs to the stunning Falls of Unich and the Falls of Damff. The walk starts at Invermark and follows a footpath along the Water of Lee to the loch, passing the 18th century Invermark Castle on the way.
Comfiest little place with a cosy atmosphere. Was our base for climbing mount keen but it was much more than that. Really enjoyed relaxing by the wood burning stove after a long walk. There were lots of thoughtful touches that made this cottage better than others (including homemade bread!) Ian was a very friendly and helpful host.
