Oakwood trails that pass a lochside pebbly beach
The trails here wind through tranquil oakwoods that are over 200 years old. This is a great place to watch for wildlife, including secretive roe deer and noisy jays. Enjoy a picnic beside the loch or take to the water – this is a popular place for wild swimming.
Why not extend your visit by spending a night at Sallochy Campsite?
