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.
A picturesque picnic spot with lochside views
As you follow the road along the eastern shore of Loch Eck, stop at one of our picnic sites and enjoy gorgeous views across the loch. Jubilee Point picnic site is particularly photogenic, so don't forget to bring your camera.
Loch Eck is a great place for wildlife. Red squirrels forage its shores and deep under its surface swims Scotland's rarest freshwater fish – the powan. This relic from the ice age is a protected species and is only found here and in Loch Lomond.
Take to the water
Portable, non-motorised craft - like canoes or kayaks - can be launched from Jubilee Point.
Camping from your vehicle is not permitted here. There are campsites with facilities nearby at Sandbank and Kilmun, by Dunoon.
Facilities & access
The nearest public toilets are at Whistlefield and the café at Benmore Garden.
There are two car parks with picnic facilities along the east bank of Lock Eck on the A815. Jubilee Point can be found approximately half way along the loch.
PA23 8SG is the nearest postcode.
