Eastfield Forest Notices

COVID-19 has changed lots of things we do. And as we re-open the majority of our facilities and welcome more of you back in Phase 3, we need your help to do it safely. Please check what’s open before you travel; enjoy your visit safely by following NHS and Scottish Government guidance; take your litter home with you; and follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.

At this location:

  • The car park is open and normal charges (if any) now apply.

Please bear with us and check back regularly for updates. You can also find more information by visiting our COVID-19 page and our FAQs.

Escape from the buzz of the motorway in this young forest

Just a few hundred yards from the hum of traffic on the M8, strolling the wide paths of this new forest are a surprisingly peaceful way to clear your head or walk the dog.

Facilities & access


The nearest public toilets and places to eat are in Harthill and Shotts.

Getting here

Eastfield is on the north side of the B717 at West Benhar. Following West Benhar Road from Eastfield, the car park will appear on the right after a one minute drive.
