Hermitage of Braid and Blackford Hill Nature Reserve is to benefit from a Scottish Government scheme to encourage people to get healthy.

Money from the Woods In and Around Towns Initiative and Forests for People funds will be used to attract more people to use the facilities by improving paths and access and making the area more attractive to visitors.  The woodland habitat and its biodiversity will also benefit.
