Glen Loy - Coille Phuiteachan

Glen Loy offers a great variety of woodland, riverside and moorland features.

The small pinewood at the head of the glen has a wonderful steep mountain backdrop and is varied in age structure unlike some of the more degraded pinewoods. A good road leads up the glen alongside the River Loy. The way marked forest trails in some of the nearby Forestry Commission oak woods are well worth exploring.
