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.

Latest on COVID-19

You can enjoy all the Tweed Valley’s forests on horseback, but Cardona is particularly good. The miles of trails offer lots of different options for cross-country hacks, and there’s plenty of room in the car park for horse boxes.

The smaller, charming forest at Cademuir is another good option, again with parking space for horse boxes.

If you’re looking for somewhere that can take you on a guided ride, or introduce you to the joys of exploring the forest on horseback, contact Kailzie Equestrian Centre. They also offer a livery service.

See our horse riding section for more information.
