Ariundle Oakwoods

  • Ariundle Oakwoods

Ariundle Oakwood National Nature Reserve is a fine example of ancient Atlanticcoastal woodland and supports a huge diversity of mosses, lichens, liverworts and ferns.  Immerse yourself in the wonders of the wild woods of Caledon, listening to the chirps and trills of woodland birds, watching out for pine martens and wildcats, and searching for pixies and fairies amongst the mossy hummocks.  This lovely walk passes through the heart of the woods and returns along the banks of the River Strontian, with optional extensions to the old lead mines in the hills, or along the Fairy Walk to the village of Strontian.
