Buggy-friendly walk (expect uneven ground)
Car park at the entrance to Devilla Forest (FK10 4AS). No public transport to start point.
WALK REPORT: 28th May 2017
This was my second visit to Devilla, my first being several months ago when my friend and I took a short walk around the Red Squirrel Trail. Since then I have been looking forward to returning to explore some more of the forest! This walk did not disappoint….. Personally I sometimes find that a 5+ mile forest walk can become boring after a while, but this loop offered lots of variation in both terrain and outlook that there was always something interesting lurking around the next corner!
I was a little disappointed not to have seen more of Moor Loch, however it made it all the more special when we did come to that little clearing in the trees: the perfect spot to perch our bums on a log and drink a Capri-Sun 🙂
Peppermill Dam was beautiful on this warm sunny day. The path sat high above the loch which meant we were rewarded with stunning views right across the width and length of it. I could imagine coming here on a summer day and venturing off-path to the grassy banks of the loch to sit with a book and do some wildlife spotting. Peace and tranquility at it’s best!
