Forests & Woodlands

    Kilmagad Wood is a small woodland area on hill ground which overlooks the village of Scotlandwell and Loch Leven.

    Kilmagad Wood is managed by the Woodland Trust Scotland and the local community, and a public right of way runs through the wood and open ground offering superb views across the Firth of Forth to Edinburgh.

    Cart tracks criss-cross the woodland and are a reminder of the time when quarrymen brought limestone down from the hills, a practice which continued until the late 19th century.

    Kilmagad Wood provides good shelter for a range of small mammals, birds and invertebrates as well as foxes and extensive rabbit populations. Roe deer from adjacent forestry plantations browse in the woodland and birds such as kestrel, skylark and green woodpecker are often seen.

    Kilmagad and the neighbouring Portmoak Moss woodland are linked by the circular Tetley Trail (three miles) which also connects the villages of Scotlandwell and Kinnesswood.

    Walkers climbing to the summit of Bishop Hill from a start point at Scotlandwell walk through the wood before reaching a kissing gate which gives access to the open hillside.

    Unofficial off road parking is possible on the opposite side of the road (near to the footpath entrance) in the church car park at Scotlandwell.
