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.

Loch Frisa

Where we are

Watch for eagles at this remote loch 

The track along Loch Frisa is ideal for walking and cycling. Watch out for white-tailed and golden eagles, and don’t miss the FANK community & arts project, with its impressive sculpture.

For a longer adventure, continue along the forest road all the way to Glen Aros, where a peaceful abandoned graveyard is hidden amongst the trees.
