Visiting the Bee Academy or Apiary? Why not take some time out to explore Lord Ancrum's Wood.
A wonderful ancient woodland on the doorstep of the Bee Academy
The paths along the river South Esk and through the woodland are a real breath of fresh air!
You can follow the river as far as the 15th century bridge. Cross, and return through the woodland. The gravel paths are wide and flat, with some gentle slopes. Cross the river again by the award-winning wooden bridge at the Ice House. Look out for the giant Redwood found hiding in the woods.
