Welcome to Scotland's forests

Take a walk in a secluded woodland, picnic by a glittering loch or feel the wind rush by your ears as you tackle a new mountain biking trail.

There’s something for everyone here. Whether you’re planning a holiday or want to explore your local woods, you’ll find peace, adventure and inspiring nature in equal measure in the forests and woodlands that stretch across Scotland.

At Forestry Commission Scotland we look after the forests so you and your family can enjoy them, for now and for years to come. Find a forest to explore today…
