Abernethy Forest and Ryvoan circuit
Abernethy Forest is the largest area of natural forest in the UK, directly descended from the ancient forest of Caledon. This fine circuit takes in a huge swathe of magnificent pinewoods, from the heart of the forest right up to the tree line and beyond.
Mostly good forest tracks, with a couple of kilometres of rough, pathless moorland, map and good navigation skills needed.
None to start.
