Where great forests meet Atlantic shores

Walking in Argyll Forest Park

The park’s impressive rocky mountains reach to the sky, but you don’t have to work hard to enjoy its wonderful countryside. Here are some of our favourites:

  • At Ardentinny the Riverside Trail is an easy, fairly level route by the water – it looks wonderful in spring when the bluebells are out.

  • At Corlarach, above Dunoon, trails will take you away from the buzz of the town to woodland where you might spot red deer or circling buzzards.

  • Puck’s Glen is as enchanted as its name suggests, with an exciting trek up a wooded gorge and drifts of rhododendrons in summer.

  • Try Lochgoilhead for trails that will feel as if you’re in very remote country. The woods here are alive with birdsong in spring.

  • If you do feel like something strenuous, Arrochar is the starting point for hill routes up the Arrochar Alps, including the famous Cobbler.
