On Wednesday this week I donned my rain jacket, took my GPS in hand and intrepidly set off into Stronafian Forest to look for paths and tracks that lead through the woods. I started off from the car park on the main road directly above the Clachan.
You can see a Google map of the route I took with attached photos by clicking here. Most of the points were linked by clearings, deer tracks or fairly open forest, but I did a bit of stumbling over tussocks, fighting through pine trees and getting stuck in bogs too!!
When we get to the point where we can start building tracks and paths it will be easiest to link up these existing trails. I have been on several walks over the last few months and have seen deer, buzzards (thanks Arthur for help with ID!), red squirrels and frogs not to mention at least 20 different types of mushroom. Views of the Clachan Burn are quite pituresque (especially after all this rain!). If you go for walks in this bit of the forest (or anywhere else) please let us know your favourite routes!!
