Responsible walkers appear to be welcomed by the estate owners at this quiet corner of Roy Bridge. Of all the options in the area this is probably the most popular with our family and dogs. Starting from the Bohenie road a forest path come track circles an attractive man made lochan. This element on its own is probably only one km but another spur leads off this climbing past another two similar if smaller lochans continuing through lovely birch woodland. Following this track ultimately leads to gate on to the A86 but before this another slightly  muddy side track leads onto pleasant open grassy hillside. A feint path leads to a strange metal framed tower  at the minor summit; this slope ultimately leading to Creag Dubh.  If the walk is punctuated by stick throwing for dogs and the odd photo stop then the outing can take well over an hour. Long enough to have given dogs and adults a decent bit of exercise yet short enough to accommodate younger walkers.
