Wood Hill Wood is a predominately broadleaved woodland situated on the steep southern facing slopes of the Ochil Hills and is home to a wide variety of wildlife. A circular path steep in places winds up through the wood and provides commanding views south across the Firth of Forth. To the west a short path takes visitors to a viewing platform overlooking the Silver Burn and one of the old silver mines. This path links up with the path to Alva Glen.
