This short but truly unique walk gives a fascinating introduction to the Forsinard Flows National Nature Reserve. The trail crosses the blanket bog on a wooden walkway to visit a spectacular modern tower overlooking this remarkable landscape and habitat. The walk then continues along an older trail of placed flagstones to visit more of the Dubh Lochan pools, rich with bird, plant and insect life.


Excellent wooden walkway to the tower, then optional return along flagstone trails which can be slippery or wet in places.
