Fernyness Wood

Fernyness Wood represent an area of now semi-naturalised woodland planted in the 19th C. as a shelter-belt along the A198 road on the southwestern edge of the policies of Gosford House in East Lothian. Ferny Ness lies to the northwest. The woodland is remarkable because it is notably sculpted by the wind, rising from the height of the wall, which separates it from the road, to form a wedge-shape. Tree species include sycamore, elm, beech and a few natural Scots pine.
