Experience the peace and beauty of forests and woodlands in Aberdeen City and Shire. Enjoy low-level walks, take part in exciting outdoor activities such as mountain biking or simply keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife.

The Cairngorms National Park is home to some of the last surviving remnants of the ancient Caledonian Forest which once covered much of Scotland. Follow the many waymarked trails through this mature and untouched environment on foot, horseback or two wheels, and see if you can catch a glimpse of some of the rarest birds and animals in Britain including the capercaillie and pine marten.

Explore the myriad of trails through Tyrebagger Wood where unusual sculptures can be founding standing amongst Douglas firs that tower above the forest floor like the pillars of a cathedral.

The surrounding woodlands of Bennachie – a hill with several peaks that can be seen for miles around –are another popular walking destination. Follow the many winding forest trails for the chance to see roe deer, grouse and red squirrels. If you feel especially energetic, climb to the summits of Bennachie in autumn when the woodlands below turn fiery red and golden hues.
