Walks accessible from the cottage

All the walks listed here can be accessed from the cottage and include a combination of the hard top road, forest roads and forest paths.

Short forest walk with a stop at the loch

Difficulty: Easy; Time: 60–120 Minutes

This walk can be accessed directly from the cottage and will take around an hour to complete. It will bring you to a small picturesque loch which offers a great spot for a picnic or a glass of something.

The walk is a combination of forestry road, track and single track.


Longer forest walk up to the higher loch

Difficulty: Medium; Time: 2 to 3 hours

This walk will take you higher up into the forest and onto the upper loch. There’s an old abandoned cottage up there and we recommend you approach the area slowly as there is a lot of wildlife to see that is otherwise undisturbed.


Pub walk

Difficulty: Easy; Time: 20 minutes

This walk is a short walk down the hill to the smallholding of Culrain, across the railway bridge footpath to the pub at Invershin. Please note, the pub is normall shut or limited in opening times in the winter months — best to phone ahead.


Note: Boots are recommended for the winter months as the forest tracks can become boggy. Please take care in the forest areas. The land around us is a combination of working forests and farms. Please be cautious of bogs also, which can be deep.
