Fines for the Ariundle Oak Woodlands Track coming soon! We are pleased to say that Forestry and Land Scotland have informed us that work will begin this week spreading fines (thats fine sand and gravel to you and me) on the top of the track and improving the car park and access. They are grateful for everyones patience in waiting for this shipment to arrive and some wet weather to bind the top together. The other news is that work to re-recreate peatlands in the recently felled land near the river will begin in June, so there may be some temporary disruption but in both cases the woodland will remain open. Anyone visiting over the coming weeks is asked to follow any instructions from staff and / or temporary signage, if heavy machinery is in operation. (Please share this post to get the message out and about. Thanks.) ... See MoreSee Less
