Latest news

Beecraigs Construction Works Underway

  • Recent visitors will have noticed that the new Hillhouse Car Park works are underway.  These works will provide the Country Park much needed additional parking, within easy walking distance of the Visitor Centre, as well as a hireable Events Area.  During these works, path diversions may be required to maintain public safety but we will endeavour to minimise any disruption to visitors walking between the Visitor Centre/Hillhouse and Balvormie.  We ask that visitors follow the advice on signage and do not access the area when works are underway, as heavy plant movements will be in operation

Beecraigs Country Park - Beecraigs Loch

  • Work is due to start on Monday 26th February on the reservoir dam wall at Beecraigs Loch, Beecraigs Country Park. To allow this work to be carried out safely, we will have to close the loch path from the Fishing Lodge to the entrance of the Animal Attraction. It is expected that the work will take 8 weeks but this will depend on the weather. This section of path will remain closed throughout but you will still be able to access Beecraigs Loch and the Animal Attraction during this time but you will not be able to walk right around the loch. The Parks and Woodland team would like to thank visitors for their co-operation in following the signs and diversions. Please see the map below for path closures - pdf icon Beecraigs Loch Closure Map [348kb]
