The Two Lodges

Wed, 6 October 2021 @ 09:00 - 16:00

A linear walk with Dorenell Ranger Service linking Glenfiddich lodge and Blackwater Lodge, finishing at the Dorenell Visitor Centre.

*** New date for cancelled event***

Meeting at the Dorenell Visitor we’ll board a coach to take us along the road to the Glenfiddich trailhead where we’ll start our walk. Heading up Glenfiddich we’ll pass through woodland before reaching Glenfiddich Lodge. From there we’ll then follow the linking trail to Blackwater Lodge, walking up and round the side of Scaut Hill and past Dorenell Wind Farm before descending down into the Black Water Valley to Blackwater Lodge. The last leg will take us along the Blackwater trail to finish at the Visitor Centre.

Along the route, the Ranger will talk about the natural and cultural history of the area and we’ll keep a lookout for wildlife such as the Golden Eagle and Red Deer. We will have the opportunity to view the outside of Glenfiddich and Blackwater Lodges but we will not be going inside as they are unsafe.

The walk will mostly be on rough tracks with some muddy sections towards the end. The route can be quite exposed some come prepared with appropriate clothing and plenty of food.

All proceeds of the walk will be going to Prostate Cancer UK
