Tyndrum is surrounded by dramatic hills, with lots of un-waymarked routes onto the high tops. The West Highland Way passes through the forest here.

Facilities & access

The nearest public toilets are at the Green Welly Stop, 50 metres from the start of the trail.

Getting here

The Cattle Creep Trail begins at the north end of Tyndrum village where the West Highland Way crosses the A82. There is no designated car park, but lots of other car parks and on street parking can be found around the village.

Walk west from the Green Welly Stop, turning left just after the main road crosses a burn. The first waymarker for the trail sits just below the sign for the West Highland Way.
