Craigmonie woodland is a mixture of planted conifers and birchwoods. There are also some specimen conifers, planted in the 1800's by the estate landowner of the time. It is a community wood managed with the full involvement of Craigmonie Woodland Association. There is a network of waymarked walks that link up with the adjacent Balmacaan wood, owned by Woodland Trust Scotland.
From the A82 at Drumnadrochit, turn up onto Pitkerrald Road. After 200 metres, take the left hand fork onto a rough farm track, then another left hand fork soon after. Craigmonie woodland is another 200 metres along here on the west side of the track.
There is no parking, so it is better to park in the village carpark, adjacent to the A82 and follow these directions on foot.
There is a bus service between Inverness and Fort Augustus which stops at Drumnadrochit.
