Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Auchenshuggle Wood survey

I should have found out about this little survey sooner, but was diverted and not watching my email properly.

It’s fairly short and non-invasive, so if you are in the area and can complete it, then it will hopefully help to get this small wood improved and preserved, and perhaps have it become a more visited and utilised spot within the area:

Relax in Auchenshuggle

Escape the hustle and bustle of the city in this peaceful wood in Tollcross. It’s ideal for a gentle stroll with the family, a walk with your dog or a picnic in the dappled shade beneath the trees. There’s wildlife here too – keep an eye out for deer or a shy fox and listen for woodland birds amongst the leaves of the ash and birch trees. Look carefully in late spring and you might even spot a few orchids.

The main path through the wood is about a mile (1.5km) long, and is wide, firm and fairly level – ideal for buggies. Stay on this path to avoid a short set of steps.

We are currently running a survey to gather more information on your experience at Auchenshuggle. Whether you’ve visited the woods before, or have never been, we would really like to hear what would encourage you to visit this charming little woodland, as well as what current visitors enjoy on site. On completion of this survey you will also be entered into our competition to win £25 of Amazon vouchers. To provide feedback on this site and be in with a chance of winning the competition please complete the survey before the 12th of September.
