Rannoch Wood 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.
Mature woodland of tall beech and sycamore trees
This mature woodland of tall beech and sycamore trees is ideal for those seeking some fresh air. Listen for the birds singing in spring and summer, enjoy the colours of the leaves in autumn, and admire the lacework of branches in winter.
Most of the paths are wide, smooth and flat, with a surface of gravel or grass. There are some short steep sections, and the terrain can get muddy in places after rain.
Facilities & access
There are shops, places to eat and public toilets at nearby Johnstone Castle.
There are lots of entrances to Rannoch Wood. It's surrounded on its four sides by Beith Road, Rannoch Road, Elm Drive and Tower Road - all of which have paths into the woodland. There is no designated car park, but lots of onstreet parking nearby.
PA5 8LF is the nearest postcode.
Johnstone train station is a 15 minute walk from the Tower Road and Beith Road entrances. Local bus services run around the edges of the woodland along Beith Road, Rannoch Road and Elm Drive. Plan your journey at Traveline Scotland.
