About Argyll Forest Park
This magnificent stretch of rugged hill country was established in 1935, as the first Forest Park for public use in Britain. Many visitors who have come to know the Argyll Forest Park, its mountains, glens, lochs and woodlands, claim that it is also the ‘finest of them all’.

Please note there are a large number of fallen trees due to recent storms. Exercise caution when visiting any of our sites, our staff are working to clear and hazards as soon as possible.
How to get there:
Dunoon is the nearest town or village.
There are two equally appealing approaches to the Forest Park from Glasgow.
Follow the M8 to Gourock or Greenock and take the ferry (see ferry links in the right hand column), or take the A82 along the western shore of Loch Lomond through Tarbet, entering the Park at Arrochar.
