Tyndrum Forest Notices
COVID-19 has changed lots of things we do. And as we re-open the majority of our facilities and welcome more of you back in Phase 3, we need your help to do it safely. Please check what’s open before you travel; enjoy your visit safely by following NHS and Scottish Government guidance; take your litter home with you; and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
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.
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.
FK20 8SA is the nearest postcode.
