UK»Scotland»Strathclyde»Kilmichael Forest

Kilmichael Forest: The main forest of Kilmichael covers over 30 square miles. Achnabreac car park is the starting point for a trail which is a 0.75 miles walk to the Achnabreac cup and ring marked rocks. Port Ann car park is the starting point to otter ferry walk which is 3 miles long and heads to the ruined village and a pier at West Otter Ferry. Glashan car park has two trails starting from the point. The red forest walk goes through the broadleaved woodland alongside the Glashan Burn, and comes out just below the Glashan Dam to return to the car park. The yellow forest walk begins to climb above the level of the dam, and in to the heart of Kilmichael forest. After a short distance the route turns away from the forest road and up towards Risby's Loch.
