COVID-19 and Forestry and Land Scotland
FLS has reduced its operations to felling that is contributing to essential business requirements to help keep Scotland ticking over. Our staff are working from home where possible; staff who are working continue to practise social distancing rigorously following Government and NHS guidance to keep safe.
Fresh air and being outdoors benefits physical and mental health and well-being, and for local visitors the majority of walking trails on Scotland’s national forests and land remain open. Be aware that staff cannot maintain our standard checks and maintenance. All our mountain biking trails and all car parks are closed.
All visitors are reminded to maintain social distance at all times.
Community woodland with short trails
This community woodland is ideal for those who want to break up the journey along the A82 and get some fresh air.
Cattle Creep (closed)
A trail notice is in effect
Cattle Creep Path is currently closed due to wash out as a result of heavy rainfall. Please obey all site signage and advice from staff. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
A short loop along the River Fillan that takes a cattle creep beneath the railway to reach the site of an old leadmine.
Firm but uneven gravel surface, with some rocky and potentially muddy sections. Some short fairly steep slopes. Includes several shallow fords, a narrow bridge and some narrow kissing gates.
Allow ¾ hour
This short trail leads through a growing woodland that was planted by schoolchildren and other local people. Watch it change through the seasons and over the years to come.
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.
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.
