The Woodland Trust Scotland celebrates Ancient Trees.

20 October 2006

Wellingtonia - Balmacaan Wood, Drumnadrochit - Celebrating 21 years in Scotland

Pupils from Glen Urquhart Primary mark the 21st birthday of the Woodland Trust Scotland by planting 21 trees at Balmacaan Wood.

Covering 35 hectares on the Western Shore of Loch Ness, Balmacaan Wood is designated ancient woodland. The northern tip of the site is completely dominated by the steep rocky cliffs of Craigmonie constituting an important feature of the landscape. The wood is a popular local amenity, there are a number of circular walks from Drumndrochit and they also link up with existing footpaths in the neighbouring Forest Enterprise and Craigmonie Woodland Association properties providing an extensive network throughout the area.
