This reserve offers everything from simple walks to tackling a true Scottish mountain experience. Be sure to be well-equipped if you head for the upper slopes. Situated alongside Loch Laggan, you cannot beat this for experiencing 'wild' Scotland. Good information boards in the large carpark at the reserve's main entrance and carpark.

Good walking trip with a free car park and essential facilities such as information boards and toilets. Shame there isn't a slightly longer length walk - you either do 2km or 10km, there is nothing in between! If you are planning on doing the longer one make sure you have appropriate equipment, it is a relatively steep climb and takes... More

You can choose one of 3 easy trails, or go for it and take a 5 mile trip to to the hidden jewel. Free parking on site.

The entry has a large parking lot with picnic tables which are perfect for a snack. Their is a bathroom situated not too far off. Around the park entry there is flat nature walks... More

Creag Meagaidh and 2 other 3000ft mountains nearby make a great walk before heading off to Skye. Still quite a lot of snow above 3000ft this month due to cold spring.

The area offers everything from well maintained easy access for occassional walkers through to Munro summits and ice climbing on the crags in winter. A wide range of wildlife and local fauna which can all be enjoyed with easy access from the carpark. An excellent venue showcasing the Scottish countryside

It is breathtakingly beautiful. The place well maintained with proper information center and path. There is small picnic tables available before reaching information centre and accommodate with toilet as well. Be prepared with proper hiking shoes as you may enter various different length and path that suit all ages. Lovely scenery with plenty wildlife to be found.

So long pants, good waking shoes, a sweater and water, then you are off for as long a walk or as short of one as you want. There is everything to see here if you want to or you can just walk, enjoy that and the sun, hopefully. It is a good place on a day that you just want... More
