About John Jackson Walk
A short, easy stroll around the lower section of the Arboretum. Taking in Pines, ornamental maples, horse chestnuts and offering glimpses of the Saltmarsh at the top of the Holy Loch, the John Jackson walk (named after a prominant local forester who championed the work at the Kilmun) is a nice introduction to the rich variety of trees and habitats that are to be found in this hidden gem of an Arboretum.
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.
