Latest forest information
The Wade's Road Trail is expected to be closed until March/April due to emergency tree felling work. A map of the affected path can be downloaded here:
The work will involve felling areas of larch trees infected with the disease Phytophthora ramorum. While the disease does not affect humans, it can be spread by footwear, bikes and dogs' paws. Please follow our Keep it clean advice and help protect Scotland's forests.
Eight mighty waterfalls and wide loch views
There’s a fine series of eight waterfalls here, and from May to June you can find bluebells carpeting the woodland. Just by the car park you can sit and watch red squirrels bustling among the trees, while further up the hill there are great views over Loch Linnhe.
Climb up beside the Abhainn Righ gorge to the remarkable Inchree Falls and look out across Loch Linnhe.
Uneven gravel surface. One long steep slope with some rocky steps. Occasional rocky section and exposed tree roots. Includes two bridges.
Allow 1 hour
The Abhainn Righ cascades down the hill in a series of steps, forming eight mighty waterfalls: they’re particularly impressive after heavy rain.
Wade's Road Trail (closed)
A trail notice is in effect
The Wade's Road Trail is expected to be closed until March/April as we remove trees infected with the disease Phytophthora ramorum.
Follow the route of an 18th century military road through the shady larch forest. You’re rewarded with great Atlantic views from the open hillside above.
Long steep slopes for 400m. Uneven gravel surface, with some exposed tree roots and rocky sections. Includes two bridges.
Allow 1½ hours
You’ll be following in the footsteps of 18th century soldiers along this trail: it follows part of the network of roads built to control the Highlands after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715. They’re named after General Wade, who directed the project – this road was actually built by his successor, General Caulfield.
