Loch Coille-Bharr and the Beavers

A pleasant circuit of Loch Coille Bharr, taking in the Beaver Detective Trail where you will see signs of the re-introduced beavers or even the creatures themselves. The almost level route also visits an abandoned settlement, an ancient cross slab and well. The area is good for wildlife and birdwatching.


Tracks and good paths which can be wet underfoot in a couple of places, short section of minor road. Some steep section, the route goes up and down more than you might expect.

Public Transport

None to start.
