Woodland Burial

The inspirational Roucan Loch Woodland Burial site offers a return to nature for those who wish to be laid to rest amongst wildflowers with the sound of animals and birdsong close by.

Roucan Loch Woodland Burial Site is unique.  It is the first woodland burial site in the country which has been pre-planted with native trees, including Scots Pine, Rowan and Birch.  Each tree becomes a living memorial in place of a traditional headstone and each plot allows your loved ones to lie side by side in the peaceful woodland.

Through the changing seasons, the beauty of nature is timeless; the golden daffodils and the blossoms of the spring, the sun-dappled leafy shades of the summer, the stunning blaze of autumn glory and the frosted patterns on bare branches in the winter.

Gradually over the years the woodland will develop, with an abundance of wildlife making its home amongst the trees and the carpets of wild flowers.

Roucan Loch Woodland Burial site is in effect a nature reserve, providing peace of mind for the family as the site will remain a protected natural environment in perpetuity.


Unlike a traditional cemetery, you are able to pre-purchase your plot and tree at Roucan Loch.  Please contact our offices for more information or visit the 'Media & Download' section of the website for an application form.

The grounds are open daily and you are invited to visit the woodland burial site at weekends, between 10am and 4pm.
