Explore pretty Glen Righ
There’s a fine series of eight waterfalls here, and from May to June you can find bluebells carpeting the woodland on your way. Just by the car park you can sit and watch red squirrels bustling among the trees. Further up the hill there are great views over Loch Linnhe: it’s a particularly good place to come at sunset.
Need a rest?
You’ll find public toilets at the Corran ferry, just along the road. There are places to eat at the ferry and in Inchree village.
Red Squirrel Watch
Meet some of Inchree’s most popular residents at the red squirrel viewing screen close to the car park.
Wide, firm and largely smooth gravel surface. A short gentle slope.
Friendly red squirrels are cheeky characters, running up and down trees and hopping from branch to branch. They're regular visitors at the feeders, and are generally quite happy to be near people. You’ll get the best views if you stay behind the screen and keep quiet.
Climb up beside the Abhainn Righ gorge to the remarkable Inchree Falls and look out across Loch Linnhe.
Uneven gravel surface. One long steep slope with some rocky steps. Occasional rocky section and exposed tree roots. Includes two bridges.
1 ¼ miles / 2.0 km Allow 1 hour
The Abhainn Righ cascades down the hill in a series of steps, forming eight mighty waterfalls: they’re particularly impressive after heavy rain.
Wade's Road Trail
Follow the route of an 18th century military road through the shady larch forest. You’re rewarded with great Atlantic views from the open hillside above.
Long steep slopes for 400m. Uneven gravel surface, with some exposed tree roots and rocky sections. Includes two bridges.
2 ¼ miles / 3.6 km Allow 1½ hours
You’ll be following in the footsteps of 18th century soldiers along this trail: it follows part of the network of roads built to control the Highlands after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715. They’re named after General Wade, who directed the project – this road was actually built by his successor, General Caulfield.
An Drochaid Trail
Explore the attractive birch woods beyond the falls and cross the bridge at An Drochaid to reach Cuilcheanna Common with some wonderful views over the loch.
Firm surface throughout with some uneven and rocky sections. One long steep slope. Includes a narrow bridge and kissing gates, as well as a long section alongside a busy road.
3 ½ miles / 5.7 km Allow 2½ hours
This route links the forest to Onich village, passing through land that was used as common grazing for sheep and cattle. There are fine views out over Loch Linnhe towards Oban and Ardnamurchan. Look out for a dry river gorge on the way: thousands of years ago this was probably the original course of Abhainn Righ.

A community long gone
