Windyhill 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.
At this location:
- The car park is open and normal charges (if any) now apply.
Wander through woodland to Brandyburn waterfall
The gentle slope of Windyhill leads up through birch and oak woodland to views of Paisley, Glasgow and the Kilpatrick Hills. Continue on to the southern edge of the wood to find the Brandyburn waterfall, a popular local beauty spot.
Facilities & access
There are shops, places to eat and public toilets in Johnstone.
Windyhill is on the south side of Johnstone, just over Auchenlodment Road from Bluebell Wood. Why not combine a walk through both into a longer adventure?
If you want to get here by car, a small number of parking spaces are available on Auchenlodment Road. Head north from the junction with Rannoch Road.
PA5 0SP is the nearest postcode.
The forest is less than 1 mile from Johnstone railway station, and there are bus services along Rannoch Road to the edge of the woodland. Plan your journey at Traveline Scotland.
