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.

Glenmore has some great choices for cycling. You can ride here all the way from Aviemore along the Old Logging Way, a traffic-free route that follows the journey taken by thousands of tons of timber down the glen. It’s a well-made, firm trail with mostly gentle slopes. Stop off at Loch Morlich for a picnic on the way.

The Lodge Trail (from Allt Mor) and the lower section of the Ryvoan Trail (from Glenmore Visitor Centre) offer beautiful rides through the trees. The slopes are mostly gentle, so they’re good for all the family.

If you feel like exploring on your own, there’s a whole network of forest roads from the Glenmore Visitor Centre. You could go an expedition to find the abandoned township of Beglan, once home to a community of shepherds and farmers. Now just a few piles of tumbled stones peek out from among the thistles.
