We apologise for any inconvenience.
Balnaguard Glen follows a steep-sided gorge cut by the Balnaguard Burn and offers spectacular views across rolling Perthshire hills. It is notable for its juniper woodland. The reserve is home to a variety of butterflies, and red squirrel and deer sightings are also possible.

Help protect Perthshire’s juniper trees
Please help protect our juniper trees by wearing clean boots on site, especially if you have visited other juniper areas, as plant diseases are often spread by mud and soil.
Due to recent weather the footpath is currently very muddy. Wellingtons or very stout footwear is advised.
