About

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.
