The Forest of Ae is one of the largest areas of plantation forestry in the country. It is well known as one of the 7 Stanes mountain biking trail centres, but it does have waymarked walks too. This loop takes in part of the forest as well as the riverside and a couple of viewpoints.


Good forest tracks and paths throughout.
