Dunlop Millenium Woodland Nature Park

The Millenium Woodland Nature Park lies about 200m to the south-west of Dunlop,
between Straightbow Bridge and Templehouse.

Grid reference: NS 403 491

Parking: Parking (1 car) is very limited by the access gates. It may be more appropriate to
park in the village and walk to the site.

Access: Informal access is available throughout the site.

Within short walking distance: The Wee Glen

Description: The site is composed of grassland with scattered broadleaf trees around a central
pond. There is a network of informal grass footpaths between the blocks of trees and to a
commemorative cairn on top of a small craig. Recently replaced interpretation panels show
the location of trees which have been sponsored / adopted by local people or as a memorial tree.
