Loch Lee and Falls of Unich walk, Glen Esk

Loch Lee and Falls of Unich walk, Glen Esk

This low-level day walk follows a really good track, passing ruins, lochs, lots of wildlife until we reached the turning for Falls of Unich. We did it as a there and back walk, simply retrace your steps from the Falls back to the carpark if you’re not carrying on up on the circular path.

Trip report:

  • Location: Glen Esk
  • Nearest town: Invermark
  • Length: 9 miles
  • Level of difficulty: Good path along relatively flat ground.
  • What to wear: Bring everything for sun and cold weather, as it’s a fair walk back to the car.
  • Kid friendly: Would be possible with all-terrain push chair, back carrier or kids to walk themselves as relatively flat.
