A walk in a quieter bog forest area of the Monadh Mor SSSI

By Julian Paren

This 3.3 mile walk starts from the Forestry Commission car park on the A 835 that serves those wishing to walk on the way-marked routes and forest roads of the Forestry Commission land. Some of the Forestry Commission land lies within the Monadh Mor Site of Special Scientific Interest; however most of the SSSI lies outside this area, is less well visited, and provides walks on small footpaths rather than forestry roads. Much to commend in doing the unorthodox! On the walk provided here, which was my first visit, there was a genuine feeling of exploration as none of the paths on the ground are on any map at all. The paths provide random loops and side trips that can create a different walk each visit. The GPS track here shows what is possible, rather than the only possible walk. The walk does visit areas of bog which can be viewed safely. The more popular walk on the Forestry Commission land provides only a very short section where that occurs. You can see this trip plotted on a map on the Geo-trips page LinkExternal link .
