Our Walks

Garadhban Forest

A bunch of grand and very quiet walks in the country in all weather conditions.

Drive into Drymen and just past the square is The Clachan. Take the old single track road on it’s right hand side where the new road bends to the right. Follow the wee road up for a mile or so and it bends sharply to the right where a wee bit further on there’s a good sized car park on the left.

In the map to the left the car park’s pretty much in the middle. You can go back out of the car park and on the other side of the road follow the WHW back the way where there’s a couple of loops through the forest. Or head straight out on the WHW from the car park towards Conic Hill.

There’s a map at the start showing three marked ways through Garadhban forest. They’re all good.

There’s also a few “off path” routes and loops for the brave, if you follow the map.

Prices start from £15. Contact us to find out more.


I cannot recommend Jacqui and Wild Side walks highly enough. It is a shame that my boxer Lucy can’t give the review as she just loves her! Lucy jumps up as soon as I say jacqui’s names, runs to her van and comes back happy and tired. Also usually muddy, which is a sign of a good adventure walk! I started using Jacqui when I moved to the area. I was careful about who I picked as I have had some bad experiences in the past – you really do need to do your homework when picking a dog walking company – but Jacqui and Wild Side walks have been fantastic ??‍?
