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.

Allt Mor

Where we are

A wonderful mix of tall pine, heather and blueberry

The trails from Allt Mor take you through a wonderful mix of tall, thick pines and young saplings, with a tumble of heather, blueberry and juniper on the ground. Everywhere there's the chatter of running water, tumbling down from the mountains.

Walking trails


Lodge Trail

Explore the atmospheric pine woods on an easy-going trail around Glenmore’s National Outdoor Centre.

Mostly wide, uneven gravel surface with some potentially muddy patches. Includes a couple of short fairly steep slopes and some low branches.

2 ½ miles / 3.9 km

1½ hours

More information

Look out for some small headstones by the path near the lodge, which mark the graves of dogs buried here a century ago by the Dennistoun family. The family ran a shipping business in Glasgow and loved staying in Glenmore on shooting parties.

If the forest works its magic and you’d like to see bit more, follow the blue markers up the glen when you meet the Ryvoan Trail until you reach the sheltered beauty spot of Lochan Uaine (The Green Lochan). Going there and back will add 1½ miles / 2.4 km onto the trip.
