Dunnottar Woods

Dunnottar Woods form part of the Forestry Commission holdings within the Moray & Aberdeenshire Forest District. As part of the Commission’s wider remit to develop multi- purpose forestry throughout Great Britain, it has enlisted the support of local communities to assist in the management of certain woods as a means to help secure their future as recreational woodland and wildlife habitats.

The holdings at Dunnottar are managed in this manner with the assistance of Dunnottar Woodland Park Association.

Since its formation in 1994, Dunnottar Woodland Park Association has engaged in a real working partnership with the Forestry Commission Scotland, which has seen positive and active community involvement in the management of the woods to the clear benefit of both locals and visitors to the town alike.

Membership of the Association comprises individuals and organisations that have a commitment to the development and safeguarding of the woods for the benefit of the local community both now and indeed for future generations.

To date, this commitment has seen real ‘hands-on’ involvement by individuals and groups of all ages in a number of iniatives such as litter clearance, path construction’ Gallow Hill’ Ice House restoration projects, a woodland walks leaflet, photographic record, bird survey, bird-box project, vegetation survey, signage programme, tree planting and picnic and recreation developments at Glasslaw and Quarry car park areas.

The work of the Association is ongoing and a range of works to further improve what is one of Stonehaven’s most attractive assets has been planned. These include Lady Kennedy’s Bath restoration project through the development of paths for disabled access.
