Our Forest Drives are once again open for vehicle access. These facilities are a great way to get into the forest and see some stunning sights from across the country. ...
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.
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.
There is no charge to park in this car park. Please park with care and consideration. In particular please park in designated parking areas only and do not block entrances or gates.
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.
