A rushing river and stunning scenery

Glengarry

Walk by the water

Some folk reckon the river Garry is one of Scotland’s most beautiful rivers. It’s a magnificent sight as it runs powerfully through lovely woodland with tall conifers. Kayakers love the challenge of the rapids, while fishermen hunt for salmon in the quieter stretches.

Much of the woodland here is native Scots pine, with a characteristic range of wildlife from wood ants to Scottish crossbills and red squirrels. It feels very different from other woodlands on the west coast, almost as if the forests of the east are reaching through the Great Glen to meet their neighbours.

Glengarry is the starting point for those wishing to explore Bolinn - the ruins of a 18th century township.
