  • An easy walk leads to a phenomenal waterfall which runs into the vat. This open air bowl formed thousands of years ago has an otherworld feel. If you're there alone you could easily forget the outside world.
  • Great place to go for a walk with the kids. They love splashing in the water in their wellys, been here a number of times now.
  • This really easy hike to Burn O Vat was worth the trip. It's an ethereal feel that reminds you of being in a movie. Amazing!
  • I love it. Wonderful destination for walks.
  • Great walks in varied landscape, loch, birch woods etc. The 4 miles walk around Loch Kinord is always a pleasure. Good well maintained infrastructure at the parking.
