Working towards a better future


Coilhallan survey

We need your support! Please follow this link to complete a very short survey (it should take about 2 minutes to complete) to show if you support the Callander Community Woodland at Coilhallan Wood. Thank you.

Coilhallan is a mixed woodland to the south west of Callander, close to the High School, Primary School and Leisure Centre. It is already well-used by the people of the town, with a network of paths and a car park off Invertrossachs Road at its western edge.

Our aim is to manage the wood sustainably to make it a more attractive and enjoyable place for both residents and visitors, while protecting and enhancing its wildlife. We believe this can be done more effectively, through a community enterprise with the support of volunteers, than is possible under the current management by Forest Enterprise.

A feasibility study, completed in 2017, supports this view and shows how the wood could be acquired, funded and managed to the benefit of Callander.

A Community Woodland Group, made up of local people with a wide range of interests and skills, has been set up to look at the idea in more detail and take the project forward.
