Glen Clova is tucked into the south-east corner of the Cairngorms National Park. The impressive environment of forests and heatherclad hills is home to an enormous variety of wildlife including red and roe deer, red squirrels, mountain hare, red grouse, ptarmigan, buzzards and eagles - all readily spotted in Glen Clova. The River South Esk, which winds its way through the Glen and just 200 yards in front of Marchburn, is a European Special Area of Conservation, and Corrie of Fee with its outstanding botanical interest, is Caenlochan National Nature Reserve.
Don't be put off venturing into the Glen in Autumn and Winter. The October/November colours are trully stunning and the Glen is quite beautiful with snow. Sadly one is rarely snowed in as their efficiency with the snow plough is amazing (although not guaranteed of course!).
You will not be disappointed by a visit at any time of year to this beautiful area of Scotland.
