Strathfarrar is the northernmost of the glens stretching west from Strathglas. The pinewoods extend several miles up this dramatic and picturesque glen.
From the starting point at Struy there is a good surfaced road leading through a gate with limited access to vehicles but open for walkers and cyclists. Four large pine and birch woods stretch out along the south of the River Farrar. A good access road leads to the head of the glen and the end of the pinewoods, where there is a large hydroelectric dam.
