  • Balquhiderock Wood

  • About

In 1314

Woods covered the edge of the escarpment which marked the boundary to the south of the Carse of Balquhiderock.

The wood provided another key geographical barrier during the second day of fighting around the area of the Carse.  It added to the English army’s difficulties in being able to move their troops properly.


Woods still cover the edge of the ridge, though they are much less extensive than in 1314.
