It is also well known for its award-winning AA Rosette restaurant, Nevis View and has over 100 whiskies available in The Mackintosh lounge bar.
A short pleasant walk through and skirting a forestry plantation (mainly of Sitka spruce) with some good views of the surrounding hills and the Sound of Mull. Path well defined with some boardwalk sections on route. Look out for raptors overhead and a range of butterflies (including Scotch Argus) in the glades. Listen out for ‘conifer specialists’ including siskin, coal tit,, redpoll, goldcrest and crossbill.
Look out for bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta), devil’s-bit scabious (Succisa pratensis), harebell (Campanula rotundifolia), lesser knapweed (Centaurea nigra), meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria), hard fern (Blechnum spicant) and dog violet (Viola spp) on route, according to season. The mixed woodland sections support aspen, alder, willow and sycamore.
This is not a destination walk, but is enjoyable enough if you are in the area. It is also a great place for a picnic.
Take the path by the picnic bench and cross a small wooden bridge. The path passes through a small hazel grove on a boardwalk and then by the edge of mixed woodland/plantation and open areas of heath. The path variously enters and skirts around the edge of the plantation.
