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.

Windyhill

Where we are

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.

Getting here

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.

Using SatNav?

PA5 0SP is the nearest postcode.

Public transport

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.
