About

Watch for eagles at this remote loch 

The track along Loch Frisa is ideal for walking and cycling. Watch out for white-tailed and golden eagles, and don’t miss the FANK community & arts project, with its impressive sculpture.

For a longer adventure, continue along the forest road all the way to Glen Aros, where a peaceful abandoned graveyard is hidden amongst the trees.
