A range of walks explained at the visitor centre from under an hour to full day. The resident guide said best walks are at the loch-side parking a few minutes up the loch.

Stopped off here en route to another destination. Spent time reading the first rate information boards on the area and the reserve and wandered round the various other attractions(bird watch hides etc) A worthwhile stopover, highly recommended.

Delightful walks and stunning views and would have been so much more enjoyable but for the Highland midges - beware
