Evanton Wood Community Company

7 Camden Street Evanton Dingwall IV16 9XU


It was a 6-year process to engage with the community and gather the funds to purchase the wood and to run a 5-Year Activity Programme. We became the proud owners in August 2012 and took on a part-time Education & Outreach Coordinator. Since mid-2019 we have run the programmes as volunteers.

Events & Activities

  • We hold monthly volunteer days (last Fri. of the month, 10.30am-1.30pm.) to cut back the western hemlock and sitka spruce, maintain and improve paths, plant native trees, clear brash, look after the play area etc. All are welcome.
  • We have a weekly gathering of People Living with Dementia called ‘Friday Futures’. (We are designated as a Dementia Friendly wood).
  • Several schools visit the wood on a regular basis and we assist as appropriate.
  • We also run a programme of occasional family and other events, including a series of summer concerts, and walks and talks. See our website and Facebook page for details (links below).


Membership is open to all aged 18 and over who subscribe to our aims.
