Outstanding scenery at a Highland crossroads


Take a walk in Tyndrum

Roads from Fort William and Oban meet the road from the Lowlands in Tyndrum, making it a popular spot for travellers to rest. The Forestry Commission has been working with local communities here and in nearby Crianlarich to plant trees and create new trails in the forest. There are fine walks in the hills from here too.

Walking Mountain access


There is no parking specifically for the trail: you can park in one of the village car parks and walk to its start.

Nearby essentials

There are public toilets and a good choice of places to eat in Tyndrum.

Aim for the top

Tyndrum is surrounded by dramatic hills, with lots of un-waymarked routes onto the high tops. The West Highland Way passes through the forest here.
