An hour in Drummondreach Oak Wood

By Julian Paren

This is a walk to dawdle over. Less than two miles and its downhill all the way from the furthest point. The walk lies within a Site of Special Scientific Interest for its trees and woodland flora. Guided walks occur in late May organised by the Highland Council Rangers. The wood has both a Fort and a Hut Circle but both need a bit of finding. A helpful sign saying "Hut Circle" beside the one obvious path through the wood has disappeared. On this hour's walk the fort was not visited, but there are images of this on Geograph anyway. Beeches complement the oaks of the oak wood, but some are now reaching the end of their life. An earlier Geotrip 1234 visited the woodland earlier in the year. The difference in appearance of the wood is striking. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page Link .
