Loch Avich from the Loch Avich Cycle trail

Explore the Dalavich area by bike on the many forest trails such as the Avich Falls Trail.  This is a lovely riverside trail to reach a series of rapids at Avich Falls.  MacKenzies grove trail. This waymarked trail heads down to the shores of Loch Awe, passing the remains of a crannog, before climbing up past a waterfall through MacKenzie’s Grove with its giant Douglas Fir trees. Or create your own route in nearby Inverliever Forest with many miles of tracks with stunning views over Loch Avich and Loch Awe passing by small hill lochs, rivers and streams.  It is possible to spot red squirrel, pine martin, roe deer and otters as well as ospreys and golden eagles from some of these quiet tracks.

Dalavich Trails

See below for information and photos of some of the many trails around Dalavich.

Between the lochs

The forest that stretches between Loch Awe and Loch Avich is by turns dramatic, peaceful and inspirational. Three tails loop through it from the Barnaline car park located a mile north of Dalavich.  Pass through ancient Atlantic oakwood on the Dalavich Oakwood trail or brave thundering waterfalls and rapids on the Avich Falls trail. The Loch Avich trail crosses forest that is home to red squirrels, red deer, and pine martens before following an unspoilt shoreline.
