Drumtochty Forest and its adjoining neighbour, Fetteresso are the biggest forests in the area between Stonehaven and Banchory. Make sure you have the usual provisions water snacks map gps etc. With the area being quite dense at times signal can be quite jumpy or in my experience the phone has no signal at all.Tree diseases and pests are posing an increasing threat to our forests and can be spread very quickly from forest to forest on muddy tyres, boots or paws. Please have a look at the link the forestry have asked to be displayed so we can all play our part.
Where did it all begin? of course with Alice falling down a rabbit hole , so lets follow the white Rabbit.
There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" (when she thought it over afterwards it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but, when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole.
Down, down, down. Would the fall never come to an end? "I wonder how many miles I've fallen by this time?" she said aloud.
A pencil and maybe tweezers would be a good idea for this one.
Forestry operations are on the go in the woodland so heed the signs where not to enter.Originally this was going to be a big loop circular walk but at the moment you cant do the full circle.
Just a tupperware container now
