The trails at Craigmonie

Craigmonie woodland was the first wood in Scotland acquired by the Woodland Trust in 1984, it is a community wood, along with the Craigmonie Woodland Association, part of a major concentration of ancient woodlands along Loch Ness,

The Association has helped develop a great network of trails that link Craigmonie with Balmacaan wood.

You walk amongst a whole variety of trees, from colourful birch woods to conifers of all ages, Some of the conifers are splendid specimens, planted 200 years ago by a former estate owner, it boasts some of the largest specimens of Wellingtonia, Lawson's cypress and Douglas fir in Britain, Look out for two towering Wellingtonias (redwoods) at the entrance to the woodland

The trails at Craigmonie offer some spectacular views of Urquhart Bay, from here you can walk through atmospheric oak woods to a viewing platform over looking a dramatic cascade water fall, the water tumbles 100 feet to the Divach Burn, before flowing out into Urquhart Bay on Loch Ness, a tranquil and picturesque spot for a picnic, full of wildlife.

from Drumnadrochit car park the walk is ¼ mile to the start of the trails.

Look out for waymarkers to ‘Craigmonie Woodland Trails’.
