Enjoy a historic walk in lovely scenery. You can walk, run or cycle 6 km along Bottenvallsvägen to the start of this route, or you can take the easy way and rent a gate key (SEK 50) at Ottsjöbua and drive to the second gate. Continue on foot to Norra Bottenvallen, where the old shilling buildings are still standing. Follow the mountain marathon trail to Södra Bottenvallen, passing Skårrån where you can take the chance to look for beavers. A restoration project is underway at Södra Bottenvallen; brush is being cleared and the grazing animals have returned. If you have lots of energy you can take a detour up to Klockanfemknippen and enjoy the beautiful view. The route follows the plank way back along Ottsjön. On a lovely summer’s day it’s great to wade over to the sandy beach and enjoy sunshine and swimming before ending your trip.
