Caving Facility

The caving complex is closed until Spring 2020.

The swimming pool which has been used in the wood for many years was considered to be no longer suitable for this purpose and it has now been developed into a caving facility.
The official opening took place on Saturday 6th June 2009 when the Chief Commissioner for Scotland performed the ceremony.

The site has now returned to the natural appearance of the rest of the wood and is available for use, see below for details.
