Our Forest Drives are once again open for vehicle access. These facilities are a great way to get into the forest and see some stunning sights from across the country. ...
Visitors should be aware that SSE Renewables is currently carrying out exploratory works at this site in relation to its proposed Coire Glas hydro pumped storage scheme. To facilitate this work, access might at times be restricted and diversions might be in place. Any enquiries should be directed to email@example.com.
Some folk reckon the river Garry is one of Scotland’s most beautiful rivers. It’s a magnificent sight as it runs powerfully through lovely woodland with tall conifers. Kayakers love the challenge of the rapids, while fishermen hunt for salmon in the quieter stretches.
Much of the woodland here is native Scots pine, with a characteristic range of wildlife from wood ants to Scottish crossbills and red squirrels. It feels very different from other woodlands on the west coast, almost as if the forests of the east are reaching through the Great Glen to meet their neighbours.
A short loop beside the cascades of the River Garry, where you may see red squirrels, deer and even pine marten in the peaceful forest.
Largely firm gravel surface. Uneven earthy sections with exposed tree roots and short rocky patches. Short steep slopes. Some parts may be muddy.
Allow ¾ hour
The nearest public toilets, café and shop are in Invergarry.
