The den with a stream and waterfalls flowing to the River Deveron has a number of specimen trees, conifers, bamboo and rhododendrons.   Paths along the den lead to a seat overlooking the River Deveron.

For sportsmen the River Deveron is one of the most popular rivers in Scotland, already considered in the top 5 trout rivers in the UK, the River Deveron's reputation as one of Scotland's finest salmon waters is fast growing. Exciting roe deer stalking is on the doorstep. A number of golf courses, hill walking and sailing are available nearby.
