Ardcastle Wood

A plantation forest established next to ancient mixed woodlands on the north shore of Loch Fyne, Ardcastle Wood lies between the A83 road and the loch, 1¼ miles (2 km) east northeast of the village of Lochgair. The Forestry Commission first planted Ardcastle with trees in 1938 and today it forms a popular recreational forest, with way-marked trails. The ruined St Brides Chapel and burial ground lie on the edge of the wood, on the shore of Loch Gair. An old sand quarry is popular with butterflies.
