Outland Wood lies near the middle of a larger gated forest in rolling countryside midway between Neilston and Newton Mearns, just west of Darnley Country Park. Junction 4 of the M77 is just 2 miles away giving easy access from Ayrshire, Glasgow and the Central Belt.
Most of the woodland occupies level or gently sloping ground except where it rises up to the southern boundary. On entering the wood one is struck by the mature larch and Scots pine towering above the main woodland canopy. Aside from their elegance these clean majestic stems also contain some valuable timber.
Beneath this is a variety of broadleaves of varying age including sycamore, beech, birch and rowan plus a scattering of woody shrubs like hawthorn and elder. A line of mature full-canopy beech punctuates the upper southern boundary, and there is one (rather lonely) copper beech lower down.
On the ground dense thickets of young trees are interspersed with open fern-laden glades making this a delightfully light wood with attractive framed views northwards. Soft grasses and patches of bluebell complete the story.
A car-accessible stone track wraps round the west and south sides giving excellent access and there is a private parking spur on the west side.
If It Were Mine
There’s plenty of fallen deadwood for the log store and the campfire. On-site milling of the occasional conifer is tempting and I’d also look to push a soft track into the heart of the wood.
Some vegetation management in one of the glades could also make a delightful locus for quiet enjoyment.
