Kinclaven Bluebell Wood

Formerly part of the policies of Ballathie House, Kinclaven Bluebell Wood was purchased by the Woodland Trust in 2017.  Planted on Court Hill, to the north of the village of Stanley in Perthshire, this comprises 125 acres of ancient oakwood, and 79 acres of rough grazing which is in the process of being replanted with native tree species. With a recorded history going back to the 17th century, the wood is best visited in May, when the woodland floor becomes a spectacular carpet of bluebells.  Leading from a car park at its north-western corner, a circular path allows visitors to enjoy the wood, which is rich in wildlife.
