Auchenshuggle Forest Notices

COVID-19 has changed lots of things we do. And as we re-open the majority of our facilities and welcome more of you back in Phase 3, we need your help to do it safely. Please check what’s open before you travel; enjoy your visit safely by following NHS and Scottish Government guidance; take your litter home with you; and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

Please bear with us and check back regularly for updates. You can also find more information by visiting our COVID-19 page and our FAQs.

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.

Facilities & access

There are public toilets and places to eat and drink across the road at the eastern end of the woods. Head into nearby Tollcross for more shops, cafés and restaurants.

Getting here

Auchenshuggle Wood is on London Road in the east end of Glasgow, just off Junction 2A of the M74. There are three entrances along the London Road side of the wood.

There is no car park for the wood itself, but there is plenty of on street parking and retail car parks nearby.
