  • Brilliant walk round Loch Ore, easy for us elderly folk, lots of benches to sit and watch world go by.Plenty places to sit and eat picnic, but not near beach😂to many feathered beauties. Find it really good that dog walkers clean up poo, but find it bad that horses leave piles of poo over main paths but just leave it, suggest they carry a shovel, really hard to stop kids running or cycling on to it. Apart from that, love it
  • Fantastic place during the summer, Great facilities in the form of a cafe and toilets, normally an ice cream van near the beach, and plenty of areas to launch your paddleboards etc from. Great disabled facilities too so everyone will have something to do and enjoy no matter what. Little bonus is a field next to the Loch where there was Alpacas, mot sure if they are there permanently though.
  • Nice play park and lots of open space. Even has a wee fairy trail. There is a cafe with toilets and baby changing facilities, all accessible and all on one level. Lovely beach which gives easy access to the water. Lots of people use the loch for swimming etc. Dog friendly, so long as your dog is happy with busy places!
  • Excellent outdoor resource,with plenty parking although it's likely to be very busy in peak times. I visited to kayak on the loch and also walked my dog nearby. Good to see lots of groups enjoying various watersport activities. Very clean toilets in the main cafe area.
  • Great afternoon with lots to do, kids loved being in the water, which was nice and shallow enough to let them swim free (8-10 yrs old). Bbq facilities, large playpark, cafe and clean toilets. Cycle paths, popular with paddleboarders too as well as families with dogs. Definitely recommend.
