International Year of Forests

2011 is International Year of Forests and if you haven't come across it yet then check out Forestry Commission Scotlands facebook page. A great way to keep up to date with what's happening in a Scottish woodland near you as part of the International festival. Check out the Forest Creatures video, it's fab!

Galloway Forest Park has a host of stuff going on so be sure to check out our events page too. Click here to visit our website.

Road closure at Kirroughtree

Apologies for the short notice but Kirroughtree visitor centre will not be accessible tomorrow. Essential works are being carried out that I'm afraid cant be avoided. This means the road from the crossroads onwards will not be open.
