COVID-19 and Forestry and Land Scotland
FLS has reduced its operations to felling that is contributing to essential business requirements to help keep Scotland ticking over. Our staff are working from home where possible; staff who are working continue to practise social distancing rigorously following Government and NHS guidance to keep safe.
Fresh air and being outdoors benefits physical and mental health and well-being, and for local visitors the majority of walking trails on Scotland’s national forests and land remain open. Be aware that staff cannot maintain our standard checks and maintenance. All our mountain biking trails and all car parks are closed.
All visitors are reminded to maintain social distance at all times.
Crianlarich Community Woodland
A mix of old and new woodland with mountain views
Created in partnership with the local community, Crianlarich has three waymarked trails through a mix of young woodland and mature conifers with fine views to the surrounding Munros. It's the perfect place to stop and stretch your legs or walk the dog on the long journey to or from the West Highlands.
Wander through a young native broadleaf woodland, which offers great views over Strath Fillan and Ben Challum.
Uneven gravel and grassy paths, with some narrow and occasionally muddy sections. Includes some fairly steep slopes and a narrow section of boardwalk.
Allow ½ hour
There’s peace and quiet in beautiful surroundings along this trail, although you’re just yards from two of the busiest roads in Scotland. You’ll find picnic tables and benches among the young birch, beech and rowan trees, where you can relax and enjoy the views over Strathfillan and the hills behind.
Inverardran Forest Trail
Walk through both new woodland and mature conifer forest with great views of Ben More and Cruach Ardrain.
Firm gravel and grassy surface, with some uneven and potentially muddy sections. Some steep slopes. Includes some gates and a narrow section of boardwalk.
Allow ½ hour
Crianlarich Village Trail
A short leg stretch, linking Crianlarich and Inverardran via a lovely area of rowan, alder and birch along the burn.
Uneven gravel and grassy surface, with some rocky and narrow sections. Some steep slopes. Includes a narrow bridge and section of boardwalk.
Allow ½ hour
Look out for red squirrels and a fantastic variety of small garden birds that are already making their homes and finding food among the trees.
