This breathtaking slice of Caledonian pine forest – part of Scotland's rainforest and our first ever mountain – now has a bright future.

Did you know?

We directly manage around 60 woodland sites from Stranraer to Sutherland and Skye to Aberdeenshire; from urban Glenrothes and Livingston to remote Loch Arkaig in Lochaber.

Find a wood

Scotland has better tree cover than the rest of the UK but is poorly wooded compared to most of Europe. Just 19% of Scotland’s total land area is wooded compared to Europe which has 46% forest cover. Only 4% of Scotland is native woodland and over half of those woods are in poor condition. Just 1% of our land area has ancient woodland.

Our woods are free to visit. To find one near you use our wood search page.

Scotland is home to around 75% of the UK's red squirrel population. Around 30 have recently been translocated to our Ledmore & Migdale site in Sutherland.

Woodland wildlife

Woods provide homes for more wildlife than any other terrestrial landscape. Here are some of the species to look out for in Scotland.
