We are a community owned woodland based in West Lothian

– Since 2022 –

Protecting local woodland for the enjoyment of all

We’re a volunteer run charity maintaining and protecting Easter Breich Woodland on behalf of the local community. (Scottish Charity SCIO SC051201)

Easter Breich Wood is a 19-hectare woodland near West Calder and Seafield, bordered by the River Almond and the Breich Water. The woodland is used by walkers, cyclists, horse-riders and is home to a diverse range of wildlife.

We strongly encourage sustainable travel. We’re within walking distance of West Calder (1.5 miles), Seafield (0.5 miles) and Polbeth (1.5 miles).
