Crianlarich Community Woodland Forest Notices

COVID-19 has changed lots of things we do. And as we re-open the majority of our facilities and welcome more of you back in Phase 3, we need your help to do it safely. Please check what’s open before you travel; enjoy your visit safely by following NHS and Scottish Government guidance; take your litter home with you; and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

Please bear with us and check back regularly for updates. You can also find more information by visiting our COVID-19 page and our FAQs.

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.
