Balkello Hill and Balkello Community Woodland

Balkello Hill and Woodland


Balkello Hill lies aboutĀ five miles north of Dundee. At the foot of the hill is the Balkello Community Woodland.

The woodland is a great place to stretch your legs and enjoy sweeping views of the countryside, the city and the coast. There’s an open grassy area, overlooking small ponds and a spring, ideal for a picnic.

There are a number of trails through the woodland, and if you fancy a longer outing Balkello is a gateway to the open Sidlaw Hills and on to Glamis.

There’s lots of wildlife to spot, and Balkello Hill provides stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
