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.

Discover intriguing sculptures in this riverside forest
Feshiebridge is part of a beautiful, peaceful forest that washes against the great bulk of the Cairngorm mountains.
There are beautiful trails along the wide grassy bank of the River Feshie, perfect for a picnic, and some intriguing sculptures to discover among the trees, by the celebrated artist Frank Bruce.
Frank Bruce Sculpture Trail
A winding path through tall trees and a tranquil walled garden, visiting the remarkable sculptures of Frank Bruce.
A firm smooth path; generally flat with some short gentle gradients.
Allow ¾ hour
Frank Bruce was a self-taught sculptor from a village in Aberdeenshire. His carvings, exploring Scottish culture and our relationship with others, fill the woodland with spirits and stories in the only outdoor sculpture garden in the Cairngorms National Park.
River Feshie Trail
A narrow natural path along the river. There are lots of places to stop and watch the water.
A mostly narrow grassy trail with rough and uneven rocky sections. Can be wet and muddy after rain. Contains short fairly steep sections. Narrow bridges.
Allow 1 hour
The River Feshie drains vast quantities of water from the high Cairngorm mountains. Sometimes it’s a slow, mist-covered ribbon; at other times a powerful torrent.
Feshie Woodland Trail
A peaceful trail into a classic Cairngorm landscape of tumbling burns, heather and Scots pines.
A moderately steep route, with short steeper sections. Earthy paths with some narrow, rough sections, including stone steps and roots. Can be wet after rain. Includes two public road crossings.
