Glentress Peel

    Glentress Peel is a new Forestry Commission Scotland visitor facility based in the heart of the Tweed Valley Forest Park at Glentress, partly funded by Scottish Enterprise and Sportscotland.

    Glentress is already the biggest tourist attraction in the Scottish Borders, with over 300,000 visitors a year and increasing. To cope with this demand and to provide modern facilities, FCS is proposing a total revamp of the current visitor facilities at Glentress. They aim to have the new facilities open for early 2011.

    Orientation Building - The orientation building will house the osprey viewing and exhibition space as well as the shower, toilet and changing facilities.

    The Café - The café building will have an outdoor decked area overlooking the ponds.

    Bike shop and hire - There will be a bike shop/hire outlet. Timber trusses will be a main feature of the interior.

    The Peel Building - The Peel building will house FC rangers and provide a multi-use space.
