Please exercise your dog responsibly and keep dogs under control. Dogs can alarm other visitors and wildlife especially ground nesting birds. Please clear your dog’s mess from paths and public area, but don’t litter the area with plastic bags!  We’re pleased to offer you a dog exercise area where your furry friend can run free without alarming other visitors and wildlife.
This is perhaps the greatest threat to the forest and its wildlife.  Just the heat from a disposable barbecue or camping gas stove can cause a fire as can a cigarette end, please be careful.

Car Parking
At Loch an Eilein, the attended car park is open daily and the attendant can help answer any questions you may have. They can also help you catch a glimpse of beautiful Crested Tits as Loch an Eilein is home to many rare and protected species. By parking here you are helping to care for the forest and the wildlife that depends on it.

Thank you for helping to keep Rothiemurchus special.

“Rothiemurchus forest is not just trees but a wonderfully rich network of habitats and wildlife, interdependent and evolving.   The conservation of this diverse living landscape does not happen by accident.  Long-term planning and sensitive use maintain and enhance the forest for future generations. Thank you for helping”
