The woods are excellent for walking with multiple marked trails and lots of Red Squirrels, Roe Deer and birds with feeders for both Squirrels and Birds

Used the jogging tracks a really lovely run through the tracks. Nice smell of alpine trees, and stayed at The Craiglynne Hotel across the road.

A perfect place to go for a peaceful walk, listen to sounds of nature and find some inner peace. We went for 9km route whick took about 2 hours. A great afternoon getaway.

Bird, red squirrel and fish watching. A stone's throw from the excellent Grant Arms Hotel. Several paths to take, quiet but bustling with wildlife.

Walks around the woods are well sign posted and paths are well maintained. Only passed a handful of people, it was very peaceful.

A lovely place for a walk and to feel at peace. You can weave all around the river, through the woods, and spend as much time as you want getting lost in the natural beauty. Walking is flat and quite easy, and dogs are welcome!

A lovely peaceful place to walk, but take a map with you as there are numerous paths off the main signposted walks to go exploring further. The Speyside way runs through it. Good to see some Scottish native forest being preserved by the locally community

Had a lovely evening stroll around this wood. Clearly marked out trails and very peaceful. Plenty of Wildlife to be seen and lovely to walk through a woodland so undisturbed. Saw Red Squirrel, Roe Deer, Scottish Crossbill and plenty more. Beautiful.

Thinking of visiting woods when we are in the area in October but I am a bit concerned regarding the amount of dog poo, as we will be there with 4 small children. Is it still as bad? Extremely bad review on Trip Adviser only in March of this year.

Stephanie and I visited on 22 September and were unaware of any such problem. I would have no hesitation taking children here. One option to keep their interest would be to walk to the end of the military road (easy going... More
