Getting Ready for 12th April

Fingers crossed we will be open again for visitors

Larch cones starting to come out

Checking the swing is working properly!!

We are getting everything ready for our guests who can hopefully arrive from 12th April onwards.

The larch buds are starting to come out, larch is one of my favourite trees, especially when the new growth is coming through, the pines feel so soft and they are such a fresh green. The Woodland trust has a great description of the larch and some interesting facts that I didn’t know about this great tree “

The Woodland trust has a great description of the larch and some interesting facts that I didn’t know about this great tree “In European folklore, larch was said to protect against enchantment. The wearing and burning of larch was thought to protect against evil spirits.”

Up in Bellshill Tower wood we have a swing made from old winch from a search and rescue helicopter, it is amazing no matter how old you are there is always time to have a go on swing when no-one is looking, George, the lab, is not 100% sure.
