Mountain Biking Highlight
The Mine Wood was formerly owned by the Westerton Estate and was purchased by Bridge of Allan Burgh Council to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The network of paths which run through the wood were laid out in the mid 19th Century by Sir James Alexander of Westerton and built by local unemployed labourers. The paths were restored under a Job Creation scheme in 1982 and have recently been improved.
There are many Broadleafs including Wych Elm, Oak, Beech, Birch and Sycamore - the Conifers include Larch, Scots Pine, Spruce, Douglas Fir and Western Hemlock. You can see wood pigeons, chaffinches, jays, wood-peckers, rabbits and grey squirrels. If you are lucky, you might spot roe deer.
