Glen Aros

Where we are

Explore a historic graveyard or head into the hills

A delightful woodland with an historic graveyard hidden among the trees. Follow the circular route through the forest, or set off on the long trek to Loch Frisa. This longer route is particularly suited to cyclists, but adventurous walkers and horse riders are more than welcome too.

Glen Aros was once home to the medieval chapel of Cill an Ailean. Its graveyard is a peaceful place with some fascinating headstones.
