The woodland at Forth Valley Royal Hospital was once part of the private grounds of Larbert House – now anyone can enjoy them. The paths are firm and dry, with lots of seating and rest areas. Take a break and listen to the birds singing, or see which wildflowers are blooming. You might even spot a deer passing through the woods.
The Roman army once had a camp where Big Wood now stands. There’s nothing left of it now, but perhaps you can imagine the ghosts of the soldiers patrolling through the trees.
Forestry Commission Scotland manages the woodland on behalf of NHS Forth Valley. For more information or to arrange group visits and activities please contact the community ranger at firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone 0300 067 6700.
