Lennox Forest 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.

- The car park is open and normal charges (if any) now apply.
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.
