Gartmorn 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.

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.
