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.
Watch for red squirrels scurrying through the pine
The Scots Pine trees of Devilla are a perfect habitat for red squirrels. After trying to spot them along the Red Squirrel Trail, continue to explore the wider forest and its four lochs, which are home to dragonflies and otters.
Red Squirrel Trail
Watch for squirrels scurrying through the lodgepole pine on this short trail round Bordie Loch and past the legendary Standard Stone.
Firm gravel surface throughout with some uneven sections. Generally flat with some short fairly steep slopes. One wide section of boardwalk.
Allow 1 hour
The trail loops around a beautiful woodland loch, where you’ll find shaded picnic tables and well-placed benches. If you don’t spot the real thing along the way, look out for ‘squirrel shadows’ hidden in the trees that bring their shape and darting movements to life.
