Glen Trool Review
Part of Galloway's Forest Park, Glen Trool is one of Scotland's best-kept secrets. With high purple-and-green hilltops shorn rock-bare by glaciers, and with a dark, winding loch and thickets of birch trees sounding with birdcalls, the setting almost looks more highland than the real Highlands. Note Bruce's Stone, just above the parking lot, marking the site where in 1307 Scotland's champion Robert the Bruce (King Robert I, 12744–1329) won his first victory in the Scottish Wars of Independence. To get here, follow the A714 north and turn right at the signpost for Glen Trool. A little road leads through increasingly wild woodland scenery to a parking lot. Only after you have climbed for a few minutes onto a heathery knoll does the full, rugged panorama become apparent.
