Hirsel Policies and Dundock Wood

About This Route

This is an interesting route due to its varied terrain through woodland and by riverside with attractive views of The Hirsel house. There are shorter walks around the Hirsel’s grounds where you can keep to hard-surfaced paths. Other facilities on the estate include a visitor centre and museum, car-parking and a hide for bird-watching by the Hirsel Lake.
