Glen Affric is one of the most beautiful places in Scotland. It’s a classic landscape of perfectly-placed lochs, mountains and a wonderful mix of pine, birch and oak trees.
The woodland is one of the best examples of the Caledonian Forest that once covered much of Scotland. The rich environment is an important haven for wildlife, so the whole glen is protected as a National Nature Reserve.
Forests to visit
Follow a short trail to a waterfall that rushes through a canyon, or explore the best of the glen’s delightful forest.
Wander through the trees or picnic by the peaceful waters of the loch.
At the head of the glen, the forest is ringed by mountains. Red deer might be watching as you follow the trails by the river.
Soaring Douglas fir trees line the trail and moss carpets the ground on the way to a spectacular waterfall.
