Woodland

Many of the Inner Forth's woodlands are to be found around the historic Estates that once housed rich and titled landowners. Valleyfield Woodlands, Kinneil Estate and Alloa Park are now open for everyone to enjoy. They can be spectacular in spring, carpetted with wild flowers like bluebells, wild garlic and snowdrops. Later they are full of birdsong as summer birds like warblers and cuckoos arrive to breed. In winter the conifer woodland at Devilla Forest, on the edge of our area, is a great place to go to spot red squirrels and maybe even a pine marten!
