Spectacular scenery. Do drop in to the visitor centre that tells the story of the Caledonian forests. Good small walks and hands on displays at no cost. Bird hide and plenty of buzzards.

Wow... what a beautiful place this is. We walked the easy trail though ancient woodland. The walk is reasonably easy for the able bodied with stunning views wherever you look. Well worth the effort.

Apart from getting a soggy trainer whilst attempting to show my wife my prowness at crossing a mountain stream, this place is a gem. Well worth a stop for a walk, clean toilets on hand as well. Walks vary from easy to demanding so something...More

There are several walks that you can take from the visitors centre. I did the easy one due to having some difficulty with walking. There is so much to take in The air is so clean.

Very helpful staff in the visitor centre. The Woodland Walk is great, takes about 40 mins. I believe the Mountain Walk is great too but we didn't have time for that. Definitely worth going if you like a good walk.
