About Eucalyptus Walk
The Kilmun research plots were established in the 1930's.
Kilmun Aboretum overlooks the Holy Loch extending some 180 acres with a wide range of forest and ornamental tree species. Among the exotic species in the Aboretum are Australian Eucalypts, with distinctive leathery leaves that shimmer in the sun and exude their characteristic gum scent on a hot day.
The Eucalyptus Walk is one of three well marked trails lasting half an hour to one and a half hours in the area.

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 Loch Lomond through Tarbet, entering the Park at Arrochar. You then follow signs for Kilmun.
