Laggan's Forest Walks.

A Community-led project in Strathmashie Forest is the result of an active partnership between Laggan Forest Trust and the Forestry Commission. The improvement of the native woodlands and provision of opportunities for public access have been carried out as part of the nationwide Millenium Forest for Scotland, providing a lasting woodland legacy for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.

As a result of this project paths have been built to provide several walks through the woodlands, some details of these are included below.
