Directions

Road Directions

Muir of Dinnet blends woodland, heath, open water and an impressive example of nature's sculptural work, all on one site. Visit the Burn `o Vat, a giant pothole carved by a huge melt water stream during the last Ice Age. Elsewhere, wander through birch woodlands, watch for the flash of a damselfly's wings or savour the peace and tranquillity of a summer reflection in the clear waters of the lochs.

The best time to visit is in spring and winter for birds, and all year round for visits to the Burn `o Vat.

Facilities include a visitor centre and toilets at Burn O' Vat, open daily throughout the year. The main car park is located at the Burn O' Vat Visitor Centre. Paths are available to the Burn `o Vat, onto Parkin's Moss, around Loch Kinord, from Dinnet village and between Lochs Kinord and Davan. The paths are of varying standards.
