Glen Doll is situated at the head of Glen Clova and forms one of the southern gateways to the Cairngorms National Park. The forest sits nestled within the secluded glen flanked on all sides by towering, rocky peaks. The area is popular with visitors who come to take in the scenic walks within the forest and out onto the Cairngorms massif beyond. In winter the steep, rocky crags and gullies also attract alpine climbers.

The forest and surrounding land are of high ecological significance, being home to a number of protected species including red squirrel, otter, wildcat and various species of raptor. There are also important populations of rare montane willows and alpine flowering plants located in the National Nature reserve at Corrie Fee and areas of geological interest in the Red Craigs SSSI.

This plan covers an area of approximately 700 ha of forests and land and will determine the development of the site over the course of the next 20 years.
