Description:

The woodland extends to 5.6ha and was planted in 2000 as part of the Millenium Forest project, which supplemented the existing
species on site. Recently, the site has benefitted from some major upgrading works, including the path network, entrance features,
selective thinning, signage, benches and intepretation. East Ayrshire Woodlands have been working in partnership with Patna
Community Council and funding has been obtained from the Minerals Trust, East Ayrshire Council, Barr Environmental and the
Central Scotland Green Network.
