We had nice walks around the lochs where there is beaver activity but disappointingly didn't see any beavers, despite returning at dusk when they're most active (allegedly). Nice walks though and interesting to see the 'evidence' including their lodge and knawed tree stumps. Go beavers!

No sign of beavers (again) but plenty of evidence they are there. Walk around the loch is lovely is most weather as it was today. A mixture of Land Rover track and well marked undulating path that not too taxing.

We went around the loch to try to see the beavers unfortunately we didn't see any but we did see the beaver den and markings along the way, which was exciting!! Trails were easy to follow, shame about the weather!!

We did the Barr Mor Trail and at the top were welcomed by sunshine, unfortunately this didn't last long. We then walked the Coastal path and saw the rather fabulous pigsty and got back to the car rather wet and ready to visit the cafe...More

Great wee walk around the loch. Good views of the beaver dam ( but no beavers ..they're nocturnal) . Lots of dragonflies made up for lack of rodents!
