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.
One of Scotland's most beautiful rivers
Some folk reckon the river Garry is one of Scotland’s most beautiful rivers. It’s a magnificent sight as it runs powerfully through lovely woodland with tall conifers. Kayakers love the challenge of the rapids, while fishermen hunt for salmon in the quieter stretches.
Much of the woodland here is native Scots pine, with a characteristic range of wildlife from wood ants to Scottish crossbills and red squirrels. It feels very different from other woodlands on the west coast, almost as if the forests of the east are reaching through the Great Glen to meet their neighbours.
