General information

Gortin Forest Pollan Trail

This pleasant and rewarding trail follows up the course of the Pollan Burn as it tumbles down the mountainside. Stop, for a few minutes at the waterfall and enjoy the beauty that centuries of water have carved in the solid rock. Continue on through forests of Lodgepole Pine and Sitka Spruce before returning to the car park through Japanese larch planted in 1940.


Route is sign posted from car park.

These walks are situated in a working forest environment and may be subject to diversion and closure from time to time.
