Crinan Wood is often described as a remnant of Scotland’s own rainforest. It is primarily an oak and hazel woodland with a good diversity of species of ferns and lichens found on the west coast. There are spectacular views west to the Isle of Jura and north to Mull from the top of the hill at the centre of the site and views across the river Add estuary to Duntrune Castle. The terrain over the hill is steep and the paths are not surfaced which makes walking boots almost essential in this wood, that often receives a high level of rainfall. Other areas of interest are the ruins of New York cottages in a clearing within the wood and the village of Crinan in the harbour below where there is a car park, and a tearoom that is open during the summer months.
