This tranquil woodland, with its majestic ancient oaks and old hawthorn hedges, has been growing on this hillside on the edge of Glasgow for hundreds of years. It’s a wonderful wood to visit for a picnic, stroll or cycle ride any time of the year. Enjoy dramatic views over the city and glimpses of wildlife amongst the trees and in the meadows.

Glasgow City Council owns the land here, while we at Forestry Commission Scotland manage the woods. Together, we have improved the trails across the Easterhouse Woods and planted new native woodland to create more green spaces for people and wildlife in the city. There are about 3 miles (5km) of informal paths through the woods. Most of them are wide and smooth – ideal for walking, running and cycling – but watch out for a few short steep slopes. It’s a popular place for Paths for Health walks too – a fun and sociable way to enjoy the woods and get some fresh air.
