If you’re a regular reader you will know that we love being outdoors and we are often found in nearby woodlands. I often search for new forest walks near me and this one really is one of our favourites. Little Drum Wood is on the road between Kilmahog and Brig of Turk (near Callander). There are lots of different things to find in the woods, including musical instruments in the form of drumming benches,’troll’ bells and a giant metal seed (check out the video below for our ‘musicalness’).
Little Drum woodland is one of the little known forest walks near me. We rarely see anyone else around the walk and it’s great to keep the kids walking without moaning, especially when they only have short legs! For adults with older kids you can extend the walk further on various other paths including this walk to Brig O’ Turk.
Aside the musical features, there are also little hideaways and several new ‘sensory’ boxes. These are where you put your hand in to find different natural items.
I filmed a few parts of our fun in the woods if you would like to watch:
