Castle Loch

This 2.7 mile, pram friendly route included so many fantastic things to explore! We really weren’t expecting such a fun filled morning! There was a castle ruin, ‘talking’ trees, outdoor games and water for skimming stones. What more could you need?!

We parked at Castle Loch Parking, DG11 1LP. This is a free car park although it can get full fast. There are also plenty of other places around Castle Loch where you could park. I would love to explore the full circular route of Castle Loch – perhaps when I don’t have all four of my small children with me! On this day we walked from the car park to the castle ruin and then back on ourselves.

When we entered the woods we weren’t expecting there to be such wonderful activities to be enjoyed. We found outdoor games to play, wigwams to enjoy, fairy foots to spot and we stopped to chat to lots of smiling trees.This wood really is a child’s paradise! It also provides great shelter when the weather turns wet.

Overall, this is a fabulous walk of nearly three miles offering beautiful scenery, enchanting woods and a safe habitat for hundreds of animals. This walk is well worth a trip.
