the location is astounding! Helpful staff who gave an unexpected tour. Lovely area to visit, wish there had been an opening so we could spend the night.
well done nts for removing intrusive hill tracks, converting them to excellent footpaths, and culling the deer to allow Scots pine woods to flourish Derry Lodge - a boarded up shell - is so sad. in any similar Alps or Pyrenees valley, it would be a much-loved tearoom encouraging people young and old to hike the 3 miles in, maybe...
