This circuit visits the Garten pinewoods which are being restored to a natural state by the RSPB. It includes a visit to Loch Garten - famous for its Osprey eyrie- and the more secretive Loch Mallachie. There are waymarked options for shorter walks. These special woods are home to the rare capercaillie, and dogs should be kept on a short lead during the very sensitive breeding season between 1 April and 15 August.
Forest paths and tracks, mostly excellent but with one boggy section
