Mabie

Escape from it all in a forest buzzing with nature. 
 
There’s something here for everyone – open space to play, picnic and barbecue, lots of trails with spectacular views, and plenty of opportunities for wildlife watching. This now quiet forest was also once bustling with industry.
 
The Romans used the area to make charcoal and iron smelting, while forestry has been in operation here since the 40s as part of the wartime tree-planting scheme.  The area has a range of trails, Orchard Trail is the main all-abilities trail that runs through a set of stunning redwoods and sequoia to a sensory garden with wildlife sculptures.

Gentle strolls among the pines around Aldie Burn. 

The burn moves slowly through this tranquil pine forest as it makes its way to the sea. The water used to power many watermills and powered the nearby town of Tain.  

There are two all-abilities trails here. The Pond Trail takes you to a salmon-shaped pond. Here you can try pond dipping or enjoy a picnic by the burn. The second trail is the Aldie Burn Trail, which takes you up Glen Aldie through a Scots Pine forest and a heather bed.
