Broxburn Community Woodland

The Broxburn Community Woodland, located to the north of Broxburn, covers an area of 24 hectares.   First planted in 1999, the woodland has grown to include a mixture of native trees such as oak, ash, silver, birch, alder and rowan, with some Scots Pine too.  The site is accessible from entrances at the west, at the rear of Kirkhill Primary School and off Galloway Crescent.



Approximately three miles of unsurfaced footpaths criss-cross the woodland, while a central surfaced footpath links the eastern and western areas.

The woodland includes:

  • part of the Kirkhill Pillar Project - an art project featuring eleven planetary sculptures which are sited across West Lothian
  • a red sculpture representative of Mars - designed to reflect the colour of Mars and the shale bing in Broxburn
  • an ancient field system
  • a Scheduled Ancient Monument - the remains of an unenclosed prehistoric settlement (visible as cropmarks).  The settlement is likely to date from the late Bronze Age or Iron Age (c 1800 BC - AD 400)

A wide range of wildlife can be found in the woodland - including Roe deer which roam in the woods and feed on the bramble.

The site gives visitors stunning views of the Broxburn bing, Arthur's Seat in Edinburgh, the Pentland Hills and the bridges over the River Forth.

For more information and a map of the woodland, please visit the Broxburn Community Woodland page on the West Lothian Council web site.
