A nationally renowned hub of outdoor activities
Leanachan forest is popular for walking, running and gentle cycling, with miles of trails under the northern slopes of Ben Nevis.

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.
