Carron Glen is a beautiful native oak and ash woodland along a steep-sided gorge carved by the River Carron. The canopy is animated with woodland birds and the river provides prime fishing for dippers and kingfishers.
The path through the reserve provides impressive views of the gorge and ancient woodlands where rare plants such as globeflower and toothwort grow.
From Denny, take the B818 west towards Fintry. The reserve lies along the banks of the River Carron, just north of the road at Fankerton village.
Park in the car park at the western side of Fankerton. Follow the path down to the bridge over the River Carron to access the reserve.
Take care on the paths along the gorge. Dogs must be kept under close control at all times.
