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.

Where we are

Picnic on Mull's wild coast

Garmony is a great place to admire the view or have a picnic. If you feel like some exercise, the coastal trail between here and Fishnish is an excellent way to explore Mull’s wild sea shore. The sharp, plaintive call of oystercatchers makes a perfect soundtrack to the scene, and if you’re lucky you may spot otters or porpoises.
