We are working hard to make our forests safe again after recent storms. To enjoy your visit safely please plan ahead, follow local signage and park considerately.

Breathing in fresh air, surrounding yourself with stunning natural beauty and keeping an eye out for your favourite wildlife can be a great way to recharge your batteries. Whether you use a wheelchair, push a buggy, or even if you thought your exploring days were behind you, we think our forests will have a trail for you.

Our accessible forests

Our all-abilities trails are wide, generally have a uniform surface, and are marked with clear, easy to follow signage. They can usually be found at destinations with accessible facilities such as toilets, parking spaces and visitor centres. Blue badge holders can park for free in any of our car parks.

You can see a list of our forests with accessible trails and facilities on our Find a forest search tool:

Forests with accessible facilities

We have our own trail-grading system to describe the terrain, conditions and features of each trail. While we are confident that our all-abilities trails will be comfortably accessible to everyone, you may find that some of our easy, moderate or strenuous trails are also manageable.

If you have any questions about accessibility at our destinations, do get in touch with your local Forestry and Land Scotland office. Our staff will be delighted to help.
