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.

Wildlife, woodland and water

Surrounded by water and dotted with farms, forests and fishing villages, the Black Isle is rich in coastal and woodland wildlife. Strictly speaking, it’s a peninsula, not an island, but this corner of Scotland definitely has its own character.

Red kites soar overheard and dolphins are frequently seen off the coast. Tread quietly in the Black Isle's gentle pinewoods and you'll see and hear many thrilling smaller animals, like red squirrels, herons and mallards.
