Three enticing trails wind through Blairadam Wood, an attractive mix of mighty spruces and colourful beech woodland.

William Adam, the noted Scottish architect, built Blairadam House here in the 1730s and landscaped the surrounding estate. He also built pits to extract coal.

Follow the trails to spot red squirrels, lofty trees, elegant bridges and old mine workings.

On dark evenings you might even glimpse a ghostly miner, or the fabled beast of Blairadam.
