  • Yep definitely a walk not to be missed. Feels a little like Canada but on a much smaller scale.
  • This pond is great for a 30-40 minute walk (as it's circumference is not too large) and also provides many spots to sit an enjoy the view. While it can get busy during the day, the evening is an ideal time to visit as most tourists will have already left. The pond's beauty is enhanced by its dark waters, which are enriched by peat. However, the water is often so still that it takes on the sky's color.
