About Camore Woods Cycle

This is a family-friendly ride around Camore Woods: Soak up the tranquillity of the forest whilst watching out for buzzards hunting voles, roe deer flitting through the trees and woodland birds feasting on wild raspberries and blaeberries in summer. Hidden in the forest are more than 25 hut circles and chambered cairns. You can also drive to this wood instead of cycling the loop from Dornoch town centre. There is a simple 1 mile loop in the woods suitable for younger children. Directions: Travel out of Dornoch on Castle Street for 250 metres and turn left onto Sutherland Road for 2 miles. Turn right into Camore Woods and follow the track through for 1.5 miles, then through a gate, along a narrow path and a further gate. Turn right onto the A949, past the schools and into the centre of Dornoch. For a traffic-free option, drive to Camore Woods car park.
