Natural park with a lot of walking trails, gorges, falls, lochs and stunnings views. Besides, there is not much people so, the wild nature is more enjoyable.

Yes, some lovely short trails. My nephews enjoyed the River Affric walk from the top car park, where there’s also a very short trail up to a view point. You could take them to see the stags in Glen Cannich very nearby.
