About Hemlock Walk
The Kilmun Forest research plots were established in the 1930's to monitor the success of a variety of exotic tree species in the humid west coast environment.
Among the exotic species in the Aboretum there are Japanese Maples which have a flamboyant colour effect in late autumn.
The Hemlock Walk is one of three waymarked paths that wind through the plots and require a moderate degree of fitness.
See also our pages on forests around Dunoon.
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.
