Welcome to Langass Woods
Langass Woods is a community woodland on the island of North Uist managed by Urras a Craobh Uibhist a Tuath (The North Uist Woodland Trust). On an island with no native woodland, Langass Woods provides a unique environment for trees and wildlife to flourish. Since taking over the management of the woodland in 2005, Urras a Craobh Uibhist a Tuath have actively striven to improve the biodiversity and access to Langass for recreational and educational purposes for locals and visitors alike.

Walking Within Langass Woods
In 2010 Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre on North Uist in collaboration with pupils and teachers from Lionacleit Secondary School, Carinish Primary School and the North Uist Woodland Trust led a project creatively exploring the heritage and ecology of Langass Woods. During the project pupils worked with arts professionals and staff from Scottish Natural Heritage to create an art-trail and interpretation for the woodland, including an interactive digital guide, interpretation boards and online resources.
Walking Within was one of 10 Co-Create projects funded through a partnership between Learning and Teaching Scotland and the Creative Scotland National Lottery Fund. The content in this website has been created collaboratively by Taigh Chearsabhagh Museum and Arts Centre, The North Uist Woodland Trust and Lionacleit and Carinish Schools.
