Aldie Burn

The Aldie Burn winds lazily through this interesting forest on its way to the sea. Once, the burn powered several watermills and supplied water to the people of Tain; now it bubbles dreamily beside easy woodland trails. This is a forest for all ages, a place of tall conifers and tranquil pine, where capercaillie and pine marten hide in secret groves, and colourful dragonflies hover on gossamer wings.

​There are two walks to choose from. Take a lovely walk up Glen Aldie, stopping to watch dragonflies along the burn before meandering back through gnarled Scots pines and colourful heather. Or try a gentle stroll to the salmon-shaped pond, where you can try pond dipping or enjoy a picnic by the burn.
