Quiet riverside trails in oak and birch woodland
Strone Hill is a natural resting place for travellers. In the past, drovers watered their cattle here on the long walk to markets in the south. Today it's a peaceful spot to walk your dog and picnic by the river. Two short trails allow you to stretch your legs alongside the riverbank or to an impressive viewpoint over the River Lochy falls.
Waterfall Woods Trail
Wander through some lovely oak woodland around An t-Sròn to a spectacular waterfall viewpoint.
Firm but uneven gravel surface throughout. Some fairly steep slopes with loose stones.
Allow ¼ hours
This delightful short trail is great if you have limited time. It takes you through beautiful mature oak woodland to a viewpoint over the River Lochy falls. On rainy days you'll hear the roar of the waterfall as you approach.
An Darach Ruadh Trail
This winding trail follows the River Lochy down through some beautiful native oak woodland. Can you find the 'aerial tree'?
Firm but uneven gravel path throughout. Includes steep slopes and one wide bridge.
Allow ¾ hours
The name of this trail means ‘red oak' in Gaelic.
