Not for buggies
Unfortunately Ravensdale Forest is neither buggy-friendly nor accessible (unless you’re mountain biking). We were on a day out, just the two of us, but brought our pal Piglet along for verification. He can confirm this walk is not suitable for small wheels and their occupants. While some of the paths along the trail would be accessible, getting onto the trail itself involves a steep and rocky climb.
That said we thoroughly enjoyed our short hike. We explored a bit beyond the looped walk onto the Tain Trail which leads you to the summit of Black Mountain. We stopped half way and enjoyed the breathtaking views over the valley below. An enjoyable spot no doubt. Sign posting not so great though. A small car park, picnic benches were the only facilities on site.
