COVID-19 and Forestry and Land Scotland
FLS has reduced its operations to felling that is contributing to essential business requirements to help keep Scotland ticking over. Our staff are working from home where possible; staff who are working continue to practise social distancing rigorously following Government and NHS guidance to keep safe.
Fresh air and being outdoors benefits physical and mental health and well-being, and for local visitors the majority of walking trails on Scotland’s national forests and land remain open. Be aware that staff cannot maintain our standard checks and maintenance. All our mountain biking trails and all car parks are closed.
All visitors are reminded to maintain social distance at all times.
A woodland and riverside beach beneath Erskine Bridge
Right on the edge of the River Clyde, beneath the impressive Erskine Bridge, Boden Boo looks across to the craggy ridge of the Kilpatrick Braes. Stroll amongst the trees or bring a picnic, sit back and enjoy the views from the grassy slopes or riverside beach. This popular woodland is perfect for children.
There’s a network of about 2 miles of informal trails, all ideal for easy walking and cycling. The paths are wide and smooth – great for buggies too – but be prepared for a few short moderate slopes.
Please take care when using the beach during periods of wet weather as the area is prone to quicksand. Also during winter and bird nesting season please keep dogs away from this area to prevent disturbing wildlife.
Clyde Coastal Path
If you would like to explore a bit farther afield, Boden Boo is also on the Clyde Coastal Path – a 55km trail from Kelly Burn between Wemyss Bay and Skelmorlie to Milngavie.
Facilities & access
You’ll find plenty of places to eat, drink and shop, and public toilets, at nearby Erskine.
The turn-off for Boden Boo is on the A726, just off the south end of the Erskine Bridge. Between the roundabouts for the Erskine Bridge and Erskine town, turn north onto a small road signposted 'Crisis Counselling Centre' and follow this for 600 yards to reach the car park.
