Dean Plantation

Where we are

About

Attractive forest with a carpet of bluebells in Spring

This long-established forest is an attractive mix of conifers and broadleaved woodland. It’s a great place for a walk, and you can get here straight from town along the West Fife Cycle Way. Come in May to see the haze of bluebells along Pitfirrane Dean burn.

Do take care when exploring the 4 ½ miles of trails here, as there are some uneven surfaces and very steep slopes.
