About Glenfinnan Pinewood Trail
A scenic walk along the shores of Loch Shiel with three side tracks to viewpoints amongst the awe-inspiring Caledonian Pines. Just imagine, these trees were around at the time of Prince Charlie's Raising of the Standard at Glenfinnan. Wonder at the stories that these trees could tell.
Follow the otter waymarkers to viewpoints along the way. Suberb views of the Glenfinnan Monument and Viaduct as seen in "Harry Potter" and other films.
Want to know more about Glenfinnan, the monument and the Joacobite's? Why not visit the National Trust Centre in the village.
How to get there:
By road, take the A830 'Road to the Isles' from Fort William. After 15 miles, cross under the railway bridge and turn left onto the forest road. Keep right and the car park is on the right beside the river.
