Woodland Burial Ground
Cothiemuir Hill is a haven of peace and natural beauty. At the heart of the historic Forbes Estate in Aberdeenshire, it has been a special, historically important place, for thousands of years. Today it offers a place of escape away from it all.
Natural burial at Cothiemuir (sometimes called woodland burial or green burial) is the most ecological funeral option available. Choosing natural burial shows that you care for the planet and for the generations to come.
With our support and inspiration you'll have the time and space to do things your way. Afterwards, families can return to the quietness of the surroundings, the wildlife and their memories.
