Where we are

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

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