From the car park beside the village shop the route travels down to the old ruined remains of the furnace just over the bridge. This is where the village gets its name from. Our circular path between Furnace and Auchindrain traverses six miles of natural beauty and Highland history. Amid relics of old industry, you will see animals, birds and flowers. A steep climb on a good forest road enables you to gain height easily to view Loch Fyne in all its glory. The path can be somewhat muddy in certain places, but this does not detract from the enjoyment of this fascinating route. At the mid-point you can visit the Auchindrain Township Museum; there is a small café at the centre. As you travel on towards a stone bridge and turn down the path, Miller's Falls come into view. From here there are many interesting historical sites on the way down to Furnace.
