This is close to where we live now and we go there often. If you like Lord of the Rings style forests, waterfalls and wildlife it's well worth a visit.

A truly awesome walk, relaxing with so much character you feel like you really are amongst the fairies. Waterfalls and majestic trees. Steep steps in some parts, wear sturdy shoes as its damp on even the sunniest days. Small children will love it! Fantastic views...More

I walked this with a 6 year old and a 3 year old and we all loved it, scenery was amazing and the kids found the walkways one big adventure. Will definately go back.

Thoroughly recommend, although pretty tricky walk so wouldn't recommend with pushchair or if not steady on your feet. Beautiful waterfalls and enchanting feel to the whole place. My only complaint is that it's not longer. Free parking - what more do you need?

We were lucky having a fairly sunny day that shone through the gnarled and twisted trees - quite Ent like (Lord of the Rings) - on our walk through the forest, across wooden bridges over waterfalls and streams. The dogs loved running in and out...More

I took a bus from Dunoon which stopped by the diner at the bridge, a few minutes walk away from the start if the walk. I recall I took it from the foot passenger ferry terminal but can't remember the number if the bus
