The Woods

Use this map to find the wood nearest to you and then scroll over each to find out more.

The 14 Commonwealth Woods all offer something different. 

Among the woods are Kilpatrick Hills with a sheltered woodland glen, rolling hills and rugged moorland. Castlemilk, ancient woods, a waterfall and good path network. Next door there’s Cathkin Braes, great views and biking tracks at the official 2014 Commonwealth Games mountain biking venue. Easterhouse, five separate woods including Bishop Loch with its roe deer, vast reed beds and water loving birds. Drumchapel, an ancient oak wood famous for bluebells in the spring.

There are also four brand new woods in the making, including  Cuningar , a new riverside woodland park opposite the Commonwealth Games Athletes’ Village being created out of derelict land and Old mine nature park with a great network of walking and cycling paths.

Riccard Johnston, a mosaic of mixed woodland, green open space and mature hedgerows, is the latest wood to join the network.
