Balkello Hill lies about 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.
