Glenisla

Starting in Strathmore, Glen Isla is a magnificent glen. A destination for the outdoor enthusiast, offering opportunities for walking, cycling and country sports.

From its source in the Cairngorms the River Isla flows into the Vale of Strathmore and eventually into the Tay.

Part of the glen was once the property of the Abbey at Coupar Angus. It passed to the Campbells of Argyll after the Reformation. Other parts were the property of the Ogilvies of Airlie. The two families feuded from the late 16th century, reaching a climax in 1640 with the burning of Forter Castle in the Glen.

In the nearby forest, there are some fine hiking, mountain biking and nordic ski trails close to Kirkton of Glenisla.

The Reekie Linn, near Bridge of Craigisla, is the most impressive waterfall in the region and is a short walk through woodland on the rim of a deep and dangerous gorge.

A road in the lower and middle reaches of the Glen, and connects with the Snow Roads (A93).. For more information, visit the Reekie Linn Waterfall
