Garshellach 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.

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.

Quiet forest with grand views of the Forth Valley and Stirling Castle

Just outside Stirling, this quiet conifer forest is a good place for a jog or a walk with the dog. There are fine views of the wide Forth Valley from the top, with Stirling Castle dominating the countryside around.

Facilities & access

There are places to eat and public toilets in Stirling, about 3 miles away.

Getting here

Halfway between Stirling and Gargunnock on the A811, follow the turning to the south signposted to Cambusbarron/Touch Business Centre. The forest entrance is about ¼ mile along this road on the right. There is parking space for about three cars.
