Follow in the footsteps of a generation of foresters.

Faskally Wood lies on the shores of Loch Faskally and was created in the 19th century as a ‘model forest’. In the 1950’s it became a training area where young foresters were taught how to restore woods destroyed by wartime and how to create and manage woodland diversity. The Forester’s Route takes the walker around Dunmore Hill and offers a wide range of tree species. Look out also for woodland and water wildlife - including the goldeneye, a distinctive tree-nesting duck
