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.

Long, lovely and lush

Loch Awe is Scotland's longest freshwater loch. Its gentle shores are fringed with impressive conifer forests and gorgeous old oakwoods carpeted with mosses, ferns and wildflowers in summer.

The forest wildlife here is varied and incredibly rich. There are big red deer and tiny wood ants, scampering red squirrels and soaring golden eagles. Spend a week exploring the waterfalls, hill lochs, crannogs, picnic sites and miles of waymarked trails and forest roads, and you'll still have plenty more to see.
