If you are in the area and have some time to spare it is worth taking a walk over the rocks through the woods. If not in the immediate area I would not go out of your way to visit here. Enter down a footpath on the town side of the bridge at the end of the lake. Allow a... More

Lovely trails down and along the river amid boulders. Trainers or hiking boots recommended. Would have had a little swim if the weather had been warmer

impressive, how these stones seem to have fallen from the sky... Take good shoes and walk along the river or in the forest, there are a lot of little trails. But be careful, you get lost easily. They should put more indications about how long a walk takes. We came across many people who were as lost as we were.... More

I wasn't enthused about going here but it turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. The small town is set on a beautiful lake with the forest next to the town at the far end of the lake. There is a path through the forest that is next to the town and it is worth a... More

A beautiful forest, with amazing geological features, and a really magical atmosphere. Pick up a map at the tourist info and allow a couple of hours to see everything - the caves, pools, boulders, the trembling rock and (our personal favourite) the mushroom rock. A lovely day out.

You cannot visit this part of Brittany without taking in this forest at some point. It is beautiful to say the least with leafy glades, some huge tumble-down rocks at various heights and angles, grotto areas, and waterfalls. It is a photographer's dream! There are damsel flies looking for all the world like dancing fairies over the streams. There are... More

Went here with a friend who had a meeting to attend. While he was at the meeting I had a chance to take a wander around the town of Huelgoat, and it is stunning. The lake is a spectacular place and there are several bars and cafes facing onto it. This is a place well worth visiting if you appreciate... More

Lovely place to escape, walk, get back to nature and wander in. Amazing rocks of huge sizes!! Lovely little cafe too in a real sun trap. Children must love it here to play in. I would suggest though very sensible footwear as it's slippy in places and very uneven. Great place.
