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.
Deuchny Hill Bike Park
Deuchny Hill Bike Park Notice
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), all mountain biking trails are now closed.
Jump into Deuchny
Deuchny’s bike park has features that make it ideal for sessioning. The rest of the forest has some great tracks to explore for cross-country rides and links to the wider countryside. And of course, Deuchny Hill is a wonderful place to explore on foot too.
For more mountain bike action, the guide below has details of trails for all levels in the woods and countryside of Highland Perthshire.
Across the road, Kinnoull Hill has a network of wide tracks that are good for family cycling, although you need to be fit: there are some long hills to climb. Kinnoull and Deuchny are popular with walkers and horse riders too: ride with consideration for them.
Just next to the Jubilee car park there’s a large shed that makes an ideal base for group events in the forest. It can seat 25 people and has toilets, electricity and an outdoor sheltered area. There are no heating or cooking facilities. Get in touch for more details or to book the cabin for your event.
