Finnich Glen, Scotland's answer to the Grand Canyon! The Carnock Burn has cut through the soft sandstone forming a very narrow and deep gorge about a quarter mile in length and around 80 feet deep. The glen runs east from the bridge over the Carnock Burn on the A809 but is unseen by motorists hurtling by.
