Cleddans Burn

Where we are

Latest forest information

Forests all across Scotland have been seriously affected by recent storms. We are doing everything we can to make our forests safe for visitors, communities, forest businesses and our staff. However, many of our forests remain closed while others have significant diversions and access restrictions for the foreseeable future. Please keep safe and follow all closure notices and safety signage.

About

Open grass meadows, ponds and panoramic views

The Cleddans Burn winds its way through this lovely patch of open grassland and young woodland. Follow the wide, surfaced path and discover spectacular views across the city and up to the rocky ridge of the Kilpatrick Hills.

This wood is home to a surprising array of wildlife. Listen out for water voles as they splash into the burn and watch for butterflies and other insects dancing amongst the colourful wildflowers in the summer.
