We did the two shorter walks today with a four year old and a toddler. We thoroughly enjoyed the views and all of the wildlife - two deer, lots of frogs, birds and some interesting insects too. Highly recommended.

Such a beautiful location, with amazing views beside Loch Laggan. There are short or longer walks, for people with different abilities. Well maintained, and worth a visit for the views, even if you don't want to walk too far.

Good walking trip with a free car park and essential facilities such as information boards and toilets. Shame there isn't a slightly longer length walk - you either do 2km or 10km, there is nothing in between! If you are planning on doing the longer...More

Yes all dogs are welcome. We do have livestock all year round and ground nesting birds during spring and summer, so we ask that all dogs are under close control.
