Falls of Shin is the perfect base for walking and cycling, this is a large network of forest paths, suitable for both walking and family cycling offering a large car park between the visitor centre and the entrance to the forest paths, there is plenty to enjoy and see, with rugged play areas installed for children along the way and plenty of wildlife to catch the eye.
The wildlife is very varied, with many Highland forest bird species present such as Crossbill, Siskin and Goldcrest, many species of mammal are also present, including the somewhat elusive Pine Martin which could be glimpsed if you’re walking first thing in the morning or evening.

All the forest paths are clearly marked and there is full information about the forest and routes on signage just after the Falls of Shin car park and before you enter the forest.
The walks are easy accessible for everyone with a nice smooth surface with only three or four steps at the Salmon leap to watch Salmon leaping up the waterfall.
The area around the new centre looks very well kept with different activities in nice weather, there is also a cafe, gift shop and restaurant at Falls of Shin.
