When KCFC was founded Acharossan forest was a dense, impenetrable plantation of commercial plantation forestry, largely a monoculture of commercial Sitka spruce. Since then much of the our income, as well as grants from our funders, has be spent to allowed us to open up access to much of the forest.
There is now a circular path within the forest which starts by the car park and winds up through the woodland to the Victorian waterfall, with an extra loop that carries on up the Allt Mor burn and a rough path up to Barr Liath. If you’re walking this route, keep a lookout for local primary school pupils’ forest inspired artwork, as well as bird and squirrel boxes nestled high up in the trees, and a wide variety of wild life in our dipping pond.
The old drovers road, the Kilfinan way, now joins up with the Kilfinan forest track network, allowing access for walkers, cyclists and horse riders from Tighnabruacih across the Kilfinan community.
