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.
