Popular with dog walkers, families and mountain bikers, Tyrebagger woods is a good place for a stroll. There are waymarked trails through the forest which are easy to follow with sculptures located at various points. In December, Christmas trees are available for purchase from the Forestry Commission. Parking.

A good walking area easily within reach of Aberdeen. depending on the walk there are good view and woodland to walk though. If you care to find them there are sculptures though the forest. I walked from Tyrebagger around Elrick hillther are however many options.

This is a beautiful place for walkers. You can just walk through the woods. There are sculptures to find - I still have not found them all. There are hills as well as flat groud. You can follow the river along to come out towards the airport. The trails are very well marked to help you along. You can follow... More

My first visit on this easy but interesting walk through the woodland and around the hill. Take in the views and in winter enjoy the silver stems of the Mountain ash trees as they shine in the light. Some interesting sculptures to discuss with friends on the way around

fantastic places for mountain biking. We visit here quite often with our bikes and there is a vast range of trails in varying difficulties. Can be quite wet at times but always good fun. Not too far from the centre of Aberdeen either
