Devilla Forest Trail
Updated: Feb 24
Just outside of Kincardine, Devilla Forest offers a couple of different accessible trails both in and out of the woods, giving you the option to chop-and-change the path you take depending on the glorious Scottish weather.
There is a good-sized carpark with a couple of bays for blue-badge holders, but there isn't a toilet block (and in extension, an accessible toilet). However the Forest is just 5/10 minutes outside of Rosyth where you'll be able to find a toilet if needs must.
Once out of the car, you'll see from the signs that the path directly in-front of you will take you on 'The Red Squirrel Trail', which is a short woodland walk round a small loch and back. If you take a right and continue on the path - I don't think this route has a name - it will take you on a longer walk around the area in general.
Find below a clip and an image of the 2.8Km Red Squirrel Trail.
The following photo's are from the longer walk. I have not tracked the distance of this yet.
The path remains wide, open, and the same surface all the way round.. so there are no surprises. But the path is made from large gravel stones, very large at certain parts, and it is thick. The electric wheelchair I use is able to navigate it alright, and I think my scooter would be fine with it too but different types of chair and scooter might react a bit differently,.
You will know yourself if the equipment you use is prone to struggling with grip and wheel-spinning in the thick stones.
Also there aren't any benches around the trail for people with reduced mobility, and I wouldn't recommend this route for those who aren't confident on their feet anyway because of the aforementioned stony path.
