A great local walk, although some parts of the walk can be quite steep. We ate a packed lunch by the loch with a wonderful view. Please note that you will have to take your rubbish with you as no bins within the woodland. Beautiful...More

Just a nice calm place to visit. Lots of small circular paths to suit different fitness levels. Paths mostly good enough for a pram. Toilets on site which helps a lot. We shall return.

Hello yes you can visit the forest all year round, there was a sign for enchanted forest saying you had to be away for 4pm for the enchanted forest to begin though. There is a place to leave your car at the bottom too x
