The Forests of Inverness - 5

There are some glorious walks on Reelig Glen Forest. The paths and bridges are well-maintained.

The name Reelig is thought to be derived from the Gaelic word for "burial ground" - a possible reference to a site in nearby Reelig House. At the top end of the forest trail, look out for the 19th century stone bridge and grotto which were based on works admired by the owner while travelling on the continent.

The stone bridge is noted for its very shallow arch.
