Spend a whole day, and even a night, in this vast green forest. Hire out a bike or simply stroll along its popular trails that also wind through valleys and hills. Along the way, look out for red deer and rare black grouse, or wander through the wild goat park, where you can picnic amongst the scenery and the wildlife.
When night falls, the forest is home to the UK’s first and only Dark Sky Park. The lack of pollution and great stargazing conditions mean that visitors can spot thousands of stars and the Milky Way without using a telescope. Brilliant facilities can be found and used at the Scottish Dark Sky Observatory, which is situated towards the edge of the park.
