About

Walk a mile through peaceful woodland in the East End

Auchenshuggle Wood might be sandwiched between a motorway and a dual carriageway, but thick foliage ensures a surprisingly peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. It’s ideal for a gentle stroll with the family, a walk with your dog or a picnic in the dappled shade beneath the trees. There’s wildlife here too – keep an eye out for deer or a shy fox and listen for woodland birds amongst the ash and birch trees.

The main path through the wood is about a mile long, and is wide, firm and fairly level – ideal for buggies.
