Did you know?

Red squirrels have been spotted here, especially on the forest floor.

Keep looking for these lively, cute, little furry characters, who are fighting their corner in this part of the country, where their grey cousins have taken over much of the rest of the UK.


Check out this spectacular waterfall. It tumbles 18 metres down a rockface to the plunge pool below. Take a walk along the burn and then cap it all with a picnic.
