Glen Clova is remarkable for its glaciated landscape, with the deep trough-heads of Glen Doll and Corrie Fee, an array of classic corries (glacial cirques) along its NE rim - notably Corrie Bonhard, Corrie of Clova, Corrie Brandy and Corrie Wharrel, and a cluster of diverse "rock slope failures" (rock slides, avalanches, and deformations) including The Rives on Cairn Broadlands, and several in the corries [1]

Glen Clova's 1940s postwoman, Jean Cameron, changed the uniform for women, having asked to wear trousers for her rounds, they were named 'Camerons' after her.[2]

In 2015 red kites at the Gannochy estate in Glenesk were found to have been stealing swimmers' clothing to line their nest.[3]
