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.
