Access and walks at Glen Sherup

There are two core paths on site – the Reservoirs Trail and the Glen Quey drove road between Dollar and Glendevon. The Reservoirs Trail is the longest of the way-marked routes at a distance of 14.5km (9 miles), traversing the entire length of the property and linking to the four reservoirs adjacent to our site.

Other way-marked routes range from the short circular routes on the lower parts of the site in Geordies Wood (2km/1.25miles to 6.4km/4miles) to the slightly longer 9.7km (6 mile) Ben Shee loop from the Glen Sherup car park. All walks are signposted from the main access points.
   
Thanks to the efforts of the Muckhart Nature Park Committee and Ochils Landscape Partnership, younger visitors can enjoy a buggy-friendly wildlife trail and pond at Muckhart Nature Park.

There are also many informal paths to follow, most of which are entirely unsurfaced over grass and can be muddy in parts. The property ranges from gentle low ground with easy, mainly unmarked walks, to the higher hill tops with steep and exposed ground with no formal paths. Small burns are, in general, not bridged. Path surfaces are for most of the year too soft  for horses or bicycles with the exception of the Glen Quey drove road which, when dry in summer, would be suitable for both over most of its length.

Welcome signs

Although access from the public road is not directly onto Woodland Trust Scotland land, it is well signposted, and within a short distance you will come across our welcome signs. For panoramic views of the Ochil Hills, a climb up Ben Shee, Innerdownie or Seamab is well worth the effort.

The weather in the Scottish hills and glens can change quickly however so ensure you are properly equipped when you go walking and inform someone of your whereabouts before you set off.
