Lackan Wood nestles on the south western flank of Knockree Hill.

The main tree species to be seen from the forest road are Sitka spruce and Fir species. Badgers, foxes and red squirrels are very plentiful in this area.

Part of Lackan Wood is also located on the southerly side of the minor road that rings Knockree Hill.

To the right, you can observe the wonderful old cut stone wall that borders the edge of the wood.
