Find the perfect dog walk on your journey - Driving with Dogs

A85 dog walk near Dalmally, Scotland


Really handy walk just off the A85, and very calming for dogs and drivers if you've been stuck behind traffic for ages.


GPS coords for car park: 56.4029, -4.9028  Picnic tables


The walk starts well, with a view over to Ben Cruachan - the highest mountain in Argyll - from the viewpoint near the car park.

There are two short trails, the red posts will take you to a pretty impressive waterfall, so if it's too wet for a view of the mountain at least there should be more water in the waterfall. The green post trail is a one mile trail around the woodlands. If you have time, combine the two for a proper leg stretch and enjoy a picnic there too.

Beautiful oak woodland, good gravel paths

A great place to stop en route to or from Oban. The whole thing takes about 1 hour, and can be done even if it is raining!

Strone Hill off A85 near Dallmally

Great walk and great place for a picnic. We stopped in lovely sunshine, Ruby could run around while we had our picnic and then took the Red walk down to the water fall. it was lovely and we will definitely stop here again. The access road is quite narrow so be aware of exiting vehicles. There is enough parking for about eight cars.
