About

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.

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.
