Loch Glass

8 miles (12.2 km)

This walk takes you along peaceful Loch Glass in the Scottish Highlands.
You can follow a nice footpath along the western side of the loch, starting at the southern end where it meets with the River Glass. You'll pass the distinctive Pink House on the estate before coming to woodland around Culzie Lodge. Along the way there are good views of the nearby Ben Wyvis and the possibility of spotting some Wild Boar as well.

Regenerating woods, Loch Glass - geograph.org.uk - 208972

Regenerating woods.  Fenced in birchwood. Would regenerate a lot quicker if the ground was disturbed allowing good conditions for germination of the birches. A few pigs would do the trick and elsewhere in this area there are enclosures with pigs in them.
