Warnings Ahead of Storm Barra

Leys Estate - Storm Barra

WARNING

Please do not enter any woodlands on Leys Estate or the Hill of Banchory over the next 24-48 hours (7th – 8th December) due to the risk of Storm Barra causing trees to fall to the ground which are already hung up or were destabilised by Storm Arwen last week.

Our teams of chainsaw operators have been working as safely and quickly as possible since Storm Arwen, taking down and making safe as many trees as possible, but due to the scale of the damage, we will not manage to get to them all before Storm Barra arrives later on Tuesday (7th December).
