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.
Choosing a simple, natural, green burial offers a return to Nature’s cycle and will provide a living memorial for future generations in the form of a beautiful woodland.
The simplicity and beauty of a green burial can be combined with whatever type of arrangements preferred which reflect the wishes and character of your deceased loved one. To assist you in the planning details of a green burial please use the following links:
