Update: Fence blocking track at Gubhill, Forest of Ae

There new high metal fences blocking the track at Gubhill (NX 972 922). These block both the turnoff from the road (NX 970 921) and the tracks from the wider forest coming in past the farm (NX 972 922 and NX 973 921). This cuts off a route previously used by teams, and will be particularly problematic for teams trying to get out to the road using this track. A nearby entry/exit point from the forest is the picnic area in Ae (NX 985 922).

The Forestry Commission has maps of the Forest of Ae which show carparks and other facilities on its website.

Update: Locked gate at Fingland

There is now a locked gate at the end of the minor road between Crawick and Fingland (NS 753 176). Styles have been erected to allow groups to cross, however, there is limited turning space so access by mini-bus is not recommended
