Lennox Forest

Where we are

About

Tranquil conifer woodland on the edge of the Campsie Fells

The woodland here is criss-crossed with wide forest roads, so it’s easy to find a circuit that’s just the right length for a walk, cycle or horse ride. You can walk or ride out direct from Lennoxtown, or follow the bridleway that links the forest with nearby Torrance.

Catch glimpses between the trees of long views down to Glasgow or up to the Campsie Fells as you go. Listen out for conifer-loving crossbills fluttering in the canopy overhead and spot roe deer between the trees.
