Brought residents from a care home and was really impressed by their wheelchair access picnic table and toilet facilities. The views were beautiful with a lot of plants and insects. Facilities were well marked and clean.

What a find, from the cutest, quaintest little visitor centre, which wouldn't have looked out of place in a laird's castle, with immaculately clean toilets which greeted you with a blast of lovely warm air, to the walk itself, Ness Wood is just lovely. The...More

Really enjoyed walks around the woods with my son's! Just wish there was better access to see the waterfall as it's difficult to see from the paths.
