Forestry Commission Scotland is warning visitors to the Bennachie Centre that the main Bennachie car park and all Bennachie forest trails starting from it are currently closed due to severe wind damage.
The Commission team in the north east is engaging contractors to help clear the damage but it is likely to be the end of this week, at least, before it is reopened.
Dan Cadle, the Commission’s Recreation Forester (South) said
Unfortunately the storm has hit many of our sites and we are trying to get any fallen trees and other debris cleared as soon as we can.
We would strongly urge that members of the public do not try to clear trees themselves.
For more information, or to report blocked trails and fallen trees, call the Commission’s local district office on 01466 794161.
