Dunnottar wood lies on the southern edge of Stonehaven with housing estates overlooking it. The wood is very popular with local visitors. The main priority for this plan is the maintenance of broadleaf woodland that acts as a backdrop to recreation and community activities for the town of Stonehaven. The site conditions across much of the plan area are better than many areas in the district. Therefore Low impact silvicultural systems (LISS) are suited to much of the plan area, with mostly stands of both native and non-native broadleaves. These stands will continue to be thinned until they reach an age suitable for conversion (100-150 years).
