Wood with space for walkers, joggers, riders and wildlife

Full of wildlife, including birds, dragonflies, butterflies and wildflowers, Mossband is popular with joggers, dog walkers and horse riders from nearby Shotts.

While it it can be muddy in places, the edges of the wood are suitable for a casual stroll. Shotts Nature Park, with its surfaced path network and occasional views over the Mossband Bog, is just next door too.

Facilities & access

There are public toilets, shops and places to eat in Shotts.

Getting here

There is no car park at Mossband, but it’s an easy walk to the forest from Shotts. Follow Deas Road, a track leading off Shottskirk Road, past Shotts Nature Park. Mossband is on the right.
