Where we are

Latest forest information

We strongly advise that visitors stay away from all forests for now. Many forests all across Scotland have been seriously affected by strong winds over the weekend, resulting in fallen trees blocking roads and trails. In the event of a safety incident, emergency services would be unable to reach many areas. We are working hard to clear obstructions and hope to welcome you back soon.

About

Extend your stay at Gartmorn Dam Country Park

The woodlands on the edge of Gartmorn Dam Country Park make a great extension to the popular circuit round the water. There are fine views over Clackmannanshire and the Firth of Forth, and you can watch for red squirrels scampering among the branches.

There are 3 miles of gravel and earthy paths in the forest, with some short uneven sections and short moderate slopes.
