A wonderful place to enjoy woodland peace and wildlife


Welcome to lovely Limerigg

One visitor described Limerigg as a ‘smashing wee wood’, and that’s a perfect description. It’s set in quiet, gently rolling countryside and makes a fabulous get away for a walk, cycle or horse ride.

There are lots of woodland birds to listen out for and spot, including bullfinches, willow warblers and woodpeckers. The paths are mostly wide and smooth-surfaced, with moderate slopes. Some sections can be wet and muddy after rain.


Tree felling activities have now been completed on this site in response to the discovery of Phytophthora Ramorum, a disease that kills Larch trees.  We are pleased to advise that a programme of re-planting is currently being planned and is likely to commence towards the end of 2019.  Due to the nature of the disease, and to remove the chances of any residual infection, we would ask all visitors to clear shoes, bikes and paws after using the woodland. Find out more about how you can protect Scotland's forests.
