The Hirsel Country Park, Coldstream

This well signposted walk explores Dunglass Wood on the Hirsel estate before passing near the Hirsel Lake - home to swans, ducks, geese and many other types of birdlife - on the return. The walk passes the front of The Hirsel itself - a magnificent country house - and you may see the Estate's herd of Douglas pedigree Highland Cattle. There is a Museum and Tearoom along the way and there are public toilets in the car park.


Woodland paths and tracks and some tarmaced road. Some of the ground can be quite muddy in wet weather.
