Wilkies Wood is the first green burial site in Morayshire and is located in a quiet, sheltered position in the middle of a 30 acre mixed pine plantation adjacent to the Findhorn Foundation. The site was subject to a severe storm and is now being managed by the Findhorn Hinterland Trust, a community organisation of local people concerned with practical and wildlife conservation. After burial the graves will become an integral part of the woodland with no headstones or mementos.
The Findhorn Hinterland is a special place with a diversity of habitats and is a great environment to explore and learn about the natural life that exists on this part of the Moray Firth coastal plain. The area as shown on the Hinterland map, is located east of the Village of Findhorn and to the north and east of The Park Ecovillage, home of the Findhorn Foundation community.
Managing windblown timber and thinning to create diversity in the woodland area as set out in the Findhorn Hinterland Trust (FHT) Management Plan
creates the possibility of producing firewood for local people with many local benefits. This work is carried out by volunteers creating fuel with one of the lowest carbon footprints and providing ongoing income to the Trust for its conservation work.
