Denlethen Woods - Laurencekirk

PARKING

PICNIC SITE

Clearings cut through the trees offering views of the surrounding countryside, in this pleasant community woodland. Keep an eye out for the old curling pond next to the picnic area on the north-east edge of the wood. You might glimpse the resident wildlife too; there are sometimes roe deer among the trees and damselflies by the pond.

There are no waymarked trails in Denlethen, but the main forest track is easy to follow and forms a circuit of about 1¾ miles. Smaller paths between the trees offer lots of options for making your own route. All the paths here are flat, but range from wide, firm track to uneven grassy paths.
