      History

      The Abriachan Trail centre is owned by the Abriachan Forest Trust community who in 1998 purchased the 534 hectares of forest. They are a Trust owned by the 140 local inhabitants scattered around the rural community. As a social enterprise they have created a network of paths, MTB trails and educational opportunities.
