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.
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.
Facilities & access
There are places to eat, drink and shop in Lennoxtown. You can find public toilets (small charge), refreshments and bike hire at nearby Clachan of Campsie.
From the centre of Lennoxtown village, turn south onto Station Road (beside Campsie Memorial Hall) and follow this winding road for about 1 ¾ miles. You will see a small parking area on your right, just before the radio mast.
G66 7NP is the nearest postcode.
