About Conifer Walk
It is well worth using a litle more energy to climb further up Glenbranter to the waterfalls - these are particularly spectacular after heavy rain.
The banks of the Allt Robuic still hold remnants of ancient oak woodlands, and the high humidity has attracted an impressive variety of mosses and liverworts.
This area was selected by the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh as an outstation for its Rhododendron collection, until Benmore became available in 1925.

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.
