The Gruffalo Trail, set within Ardkinglas Woodland Garden, Cairndow, is fantastic fun for kids of all ages. After a five-minute walk from the car park, a metalwork sculpture of the mouse greets visitors at the start of the trail, where you can pick up a map. The trail follows a short route through an atmospheric area of the woods. At the end of the path, near the lochan where water lilies flower in the summer, the Gruffalo sculpture is hidden, waiting to surprise exploring children. Selected pages from the Scots version of the famous book are displayed at intervals along the way.
There is now a fairy trail at the gardens too, where elves and fairies have decided to make their home.
