Description of the area

How to get there

At Timmerviken on Stora Skarsjön beach, there is a wind shelter with seating and barbecue area. The view from the barbecue area down to the lake is fantastic. Bathing in the lake is on the sandy beach. This can be the start or end of a walk around the lake on the so called Skarsjö trail, which is maintained by Ljungskile Assoc. for the Development of Skiing and Outdoor Life. This spot is a great start point for walking in Bredfjället’s beautiful and wild environs. The area is also rich in flora and animal life. For more information on the nature reserve see www.lansstyrelsen.se/vastragotaland The Association for the Development of Skiing and Outdoor Life has info on current activities, eg guided walking tours se www.friluft.nu

It’s easy to walk here. Approx.2.5 km on the ring path starting from the Coastal Path at the bridge over the motorway in Ljungskile. Ljungskile can be reached by train bus or car.

Access details Unfortunately there are no disabled toilets and the path can be tough if using a wheelchair. However there’s a parking area with marked disabled places at Timmerviken itself, so you can go straight to the barbecue area.
