The woodland consists mainly of mature conifer plantation, along with some mixed woodland and native broadleaved woodland. At the core of the site is a large open area of raised bog habitat (an area of deep peat), one of few remaining in central Scotland. As a result the wood is a refuge for a variety of wildlife including red squirrels. There is good access for walkers, etc and part of the site has an all-weather looped trail of 400m which is flat and suitable for buggies. Reached via access track south of the village of Scotlandwell.
