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.
