Magnificent oak trees in rolling Fife countryside
Set in the gently rolling Fife countryside, this quiet woodland hides some magnificent ancient oak. The land once belonged to nearby Culross Abbey and was first planted with trees in medieval times.
The 2 ½ miles of paths and tracks are a mix of wide gravel forest roads and narrow earth paths, with some short moderate and steep slopes.
Facilities & access
There are places to eat and public toilets in Culross or Kincardine.
Balgownie Wood is in West Fife, halfway between Dunfermline and Kincardine. From the A907, turn south at the '3 mile' sign for Culross. From the A985, turn north at the sign for Balgownie. Balgownie Wood is a two minute drive from each of these junctions on the east side of the road. A farm track opposite a cottage leads to the wood.
KY12 8EL is the nearest postcode.
