Tweed Valley Osprey Project Co-ordinator, Di Bennett, brings us the latest update from the nest....
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.
Walk through both new woodland and mature conifer forest with great views of Ben More and Cruach Ardrain.
