Barriers: Some barriers
A flight of steps near the entrance to the wood. Two short steep sections of path within the woodland are slippy when wet. Also watch out for tree roots.

Crooked Wood is located on the north edge of the village, and is ever popular with the local community. It is a commercial pine woodland with a bracken floor, but is nonetheless home to a wealth of wildlife from red squirrels and deer to finches and buzzards.
Signs lead from the village centre, to a waymarked, circular route around the wood’s perimeter, although the route can be extended along the quiet country road to the neighbouring village of Urquhart.
