A walk through Culbin Forest and sands, exploring a landscape shaped by natural processes, climate change, and human intervention, and telling the story of its amazing transformation from farmland, to desert, to forest - all in the space of 300 years.
Distance: 5-6km (but please note it is a 30-40 min walk to the start point from the nearest car park).
Accessibility: The route is on good paths within the forest, although the section along the shore is likely to be wet and muddy.
