Paddy Castle Walk

10 min to 20 min

660 m

↑ 34 m
↓ -34 m

Moderate track
Starting from the car park on Glenelg River Road, Glenisla, this return walk takes you to Paddy Castle and back. This walk is for the adventurous spirits as there are different rock formations throughout the walk. The walk is relatively short, but there are steep sections towards the middle and the end. After you climb the rocks to reach the peak, the end of the walk offers you panoramic views of the area and the dense forest in front of the mountain ranges. The rocks on the track can be slippery and sharp. Therefore, you might want to wear appropriate footwear such as hiking shoes. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
