Forests all across Scotland have been seriously affected by recent storms. We are doing everything we can to make our forests safe for visitors, communities, forest businesses and our staff. However, many of our forests remain closed while others have significant diversions and access restrictions for the foreseeable future. Please keep safe and follow all closure notices and safety signage.
Take care on or around open water. Find out more on our Water Safety page.
Leanachan forest is popular for walking, running and gentle cycling, with miles of trails under the northern slopes of Ben Nevis.
There’s marvellous mountain biking here too: Leanachan is home to some world famous mountain bike events, but you don’t have to be a pro to enjoy the Witch's Trails.
Leanachan is an active working forest, producing large quantities of timber every year. We’ll post updates on the website about any work that affects the trails and you’ll find signs on site with details.
