Exploring the UK: Devils Pulpit, Finnich Glen, Glasgow, Scotland


We had one last morning in Scotland before having to catch our ferry over to Ireland. Needing to fill the time, I did a google and realised we wasn't too far from Finnich Glen aka Devil's Pulpit. Thanks to the underlying red sandstone, the water flowing through this gorge looks red, giving it the sinister name. 




I'd recommend arriving early morning as parking is very difficult. There isn't a carpark and you'll have to fight it out over a few spaces on the side of the road. It can get pretty chaotic! Tucked away in a forest, the gorge is a short walk from the car parking spaces. Wear sensible shoes and ones you don't mind getting muddy. Keep an eye on where you're walking as the gorge is pretty steep so it could be easy to lose your footing and fall over the edge. It's not a place I'd recommend taking children or visiting with people with mobility issues. Keep walking around the gorge until you get to a pair of stone stairs with a rope handrail attached to the side.


The steps will be very slippery thanks to the traffic up and down. Don't let go of the rope and tread extremely carefully. The stairs are narrow and only really allow for one-way traffic so always make sure to look down to see if anyone is coming. Keep in mind your feet probably will get a little damp. Despite all these warnings it's absolutely fab. It really does feel like an adventure! It was one of my favourite sights we visited during our trip.

  1. This duel has no apparent winner. Stephen Hawking and the exploring-uk-devils-pulpit-finnich-glen both have advantages and disadvantages. If I had to pick only one, it would be Stephen Hawking. He is a more seasoned boxer who understands the science behind what he is doing.

  3. There is no clear winner in this duel. The exploring-uk-devils-pulpit-finnich-glen and Stephen Hawking both have benefits and drawbacks. Stephen Hawking, if I had to choose only one. He is a more skilled boxer who is aware of the science involved in his technique.
