    Very special place
    What a special place. There’s a lovely calm atmosphere in the den, such an unusual place with incredibly steep steps and rock carvings. The path back up was very muddy and slippery and although I slid a long way back down the slope I managed not to fall in it all together!

    So calm ! Worth a visit :)
    The atmosphere is so calm! Like I can’t even tell you how calm it is it’s so quiet… it feels just nice!! I have already been once before and loved it and will be back again. It’s a lovely place and deffo worth a trip to view this beautiful den! The steps are very steep and can be slippy but just take your time and enjoy! The walk itself is very short but plenty to see..

    So glad to have vusited
    Very quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Lovely old Church and graves then down into the Den. Unable to navigate but my family did, into the Den. A special feeling of serenity. I waited in car but was touched by the magic. Sun out, a most beautiful perfume in air, a butterfly on wall just fluttering then a sweet Robin in the tree staring at me. It was a special feeling and I loved it. There was fairy magic 👌

Best attempted on a dry day, this is a mystical location with wonderful pagan rock carvings.
Access is best to approach from the path on the left as the stairs can be slippy

Amazing place but don't tell everyone. The snowdrops in Spring are beautiful. Put on walking shoes and the steps can be a bit tricky.

I visited Dunino Den with my partner yesterday. Being pagan myself I truly felt at home. Truly a mystical and magickal, sacred place. It was also a place of remembrance. It is well worth a visit and I of course left an offering and offered a pagan prayer as well as remembering to be very respectful.

Very peaceful place, glad I came to visit. It was very interesting to see old cultures ways right in the heart of Scotland. There's a steep staircase to get down to the den.

A really lovely amazing location that's very sacred, regardless if you are a believer or not please respect this location as many of the shines are dedicated to those lost.

The woods are beautiful and very uplifting. Enjoyed my adventure here.

Really muddy and awkward to visit. Some people were dressed as elves and doing a photo shoot. It was a little odd. They cleared off when we arrived .

Lovely, hidden weird place, suitable for those with imaginations. No loos or McDonalds within reach.

I wouldn't recommend a visit with reduced mobility, as there are some extremely steep steps.

Not for wheelchairs.
