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.

Broadford

Where we are

A quiet forest for birdwatching and stargazing

This tranquil forest, just north of Broadford, has gentle views over Scalpay, Pabay and the Crowlin Islands. There are no waymarked trails but you can explore the forest roads and paths along the rocky shoreline.

Linger with a picnic and enjoy the views over Camus na Sgianadin, a sheltered, shell-filled bay where many visiting and resident birds come to feed. You can find out which birds are visiting this area and report your own sightings at Skye Birds.

In the past few years, the people of Broadford have created an exciting new woodland on the eastern side of the forest. Become a member of the Broadford and Strath Community Company and volunteer your time and skills for tree planting, fundraising and path maintenance, or simply come and enjoy the new trails through young trees.
