Welcoming you safely


  • Our car parks and facilities are managed in line with government guidelines.
  • Most of our forests, facilities, trail and car parks are open, but please check our website and plan before you travel.

Plan a great day out

We look forward to welcoming you to Scotland’s national forests and land. To make the most of your visit, please:

  • Plan ahead: Most of our forests and facilities are open, but use our website to check before your travel.
  • Have a plan B: Our forests are very busy right now. If it looks too busy, have a back-up plan to visit elsewhere.
  • Park responsibly, taking care not to block gates or roads, or park on verges.
  • Bin your litter or take it home with you.
  • Don’t light campfires or use disposable barbeques. If cooking outside, please use a camping stove.
  • Follow the Scottish Government’s 'Staying safe' advice – helping to protect yourself, your family and your local community.
  • Follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code to help keep Scotland beautiful.
  • Be considerate and respect our staff, our forests, and each other.
