Terrain

woodland paths and tracks
  1. From the car park walk straight ahead towards the woodland. The large oak tree that keeps sentinel on the bank above the car park is listed among the fine examples of heritage trees in the Scottish Borders. Go round the side of the gate at the end of the car park and through the flat
    grass camp site area with the Glenkinnon Burn on your right. The ancient woodland along the burn makes this a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Take the path straight ahead of you where the Glenkinnon Community Woodland sign stands.
  2. Follow the path up the bank through the cleared woodland. From the top of this banking you can see across to Peel House. In spring time this is a good observation point for viewing displaying goshawks.
  3. Follow the waymarkers round to the right for 200m until you meet a forestry track. Turn left onto this track and follow it for 350m.
  4. Turn left and follow this track back down to the car park. The forest is owned by the Forestry Commission for Scotland and managed by Border Forest Trust.
