Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

Greenoakhill community wood gate disappointment

I hadn’t had a chance to make any return visits to the new Greenoakhill community wood and wildlife haven I wrote about last year.

Part of the reason is down to the fact that I have to walk past a perfectly good that accesses the area, and carry on for another half mile or so until I double back and eventually reach the ‘proper’ entrance at Daldowie.

I can also enter via a gate at Carmyle, but that’s just as far to go, before I’ve even get into the place.

I had looked forward to the supposed completion of works that would see the Greenoakhill gate made available, but it now seems that’s not going to happen. I’m probably wrong, but I thought this was going to be opened once the works here were completed.

If I ever want to use it, it seems I have to apply…

Hamilton Road Entrance: Site access on Hamilton Road just west of The Mailcoach. To arrange access please contact the Scottish Lowlands District Office.

This was what I found on New Year’s Day, when I took a look in hope of the gate being open.

Just the same as last year.

It’s a pity this gate is not being made more available.

It takes the fun out visiting this wood, having to walk at least an extra mile before you get there and can enjoy the quiet walk within.
