Situated in the North West of the Scottish Highlands, Laide Wood covers an area of hill moorland which was once part of the local Common Grazings. The boundary forms a stretched D shape, with the A832 running from Laide to Aultbea along the straight of the D.
The 85 hectare woodland is bowl shaped with high ground running all the way round its southern boundary, falling away to the sea at Laide.
Laide Wood is open all year round and, since its official opening on 5th May 2007, the number of visitors has steadily increased. It is used by many people in the local community, as well as by visitors to the area, who come to enjoy the vast array of wildlife and spectacular views. The natural features which make the Wood such a pleasurable experience are the deep water courses, two lochans and a cascading waterfall which feeds Loch na Creige, the lochan by the Eastern Boundary.
