Aldouran Glen, Stranraer, Dumfries & Galloway

Allow yourself to be transported to a magical landscape at Aldouran Glen. Bluebells, ferns and greater woodrush grow in abundance at the bottom of the steep slopes of this wonderful woodland in the spring. Look out for dragonflies flitting around by the small waterfalls as you walk.

crinan wood

Crinan Wood, Crinan, Argyll & Bute

If you're after a fairytale, Crinan wood with views across to the romantic Duntrune Castle is the perfect spot. This ancient wood has a mild, wet climate making it the perfect place to find unusual fern, moss and lichen and a whole range of wildlife including the rare red squirrel. The open glades and heathlands brim with bluebells, foxgloves and heather in spring.
