Blarbuie Woodland Enterprise 
 
Whether you use the woodland features to enhance your exercise experience or enjoy some plants from the community growing area, Blarbuie has something for everyone.
 
The woodland area serves both of the Lochgilphead Hospitals and the wider public as a place to relax, regenerate, learn and improve fitness. Featuring all-abilities access, outdoor exercise facilities, sculptures and other artworks, the woodland is open to all and is planted with a mix of native and exotic trees.
 
Users of the mental health services and volunteers from all walks of life, carry out the woodland restoration and ongoing maintenance, offering folk a chance to learn new skills and providing meaningful, supported employment.
 
By becoming a friend or member, you can help in:
 
  • Improving the health and wellbeing of those with mental health problems and the wider community through interaction with the beautiful Blarbuie Woods
  • Providing a place to walk, relax and regenerate that is accessible to all.
  • Creating training, volunteering and longer-term work opportunities through the maintenance of a healthy, well-used and sustainable woodland.
  • Encouraging artistic expression through interaction with the woodland through all art forms.

Guided walks are held on a regular basis, providing a chance to meet up with friends and enjoy the woods
