Ariundle National Nature Reserve is known for its native oak woodland which provides a habitat for many species of birds and insects.

The walk starts out through open woodland along the main (but unmetalled) forestry road before crossing a small river and continuing along the other bank. This section is through open country and there are some lovely picnic spots by the river. Straight ahead are views of Sgurr Dhomhnuill.

The route then recrosses the river to return to the car park along the forestry road. The waterfall which is marked on the map further up the valley cannot be seen from the forestry road.

On the return leg there is the opportunity to extend the walk by following a waymarked path up the valley side to pass through an area of sessile oak trees and a derelict croft .
