About Broadleaves Walk
The Broadleaves Walk takes you through some of the the woodland planted as a backdrop to the original Estate house. Keeping right, the path winds up to a forest road past the semi-natural oak and hazel woodland, which is characteristic of much of the original woodland cover of the lower slopes of Scotland.
Good views from the high point on the forest road look south to Loch Eck and Glenshellish.

How to get there:
There are two equally appealling approaches to the Forest Park from Glasgow.
By car ferry from Gourock to Dunoon, or by the A82 along the western shore of Loch Lomond through Tarbet, entering the Park at Arrochar.
From Dunoon take the A815 north, along the east side of Loch Eck.
From Arrochar take the A83(T) up and over the Rest and Be Thankful, turning left onto the A815 at the west end of Glen Kinglas. Head south along the east side of Loch Fyne towards Strachur. Glenbranter is about three miles south of Strachur.
