Blue & John Crow Mountains


Clydesdale is an old coffee farm and processing factory. The site was used by the Forestry Department as a nursery, however with insufficient resources, the buildings and grounds have become run-down. There is a river with a large pool suitable for swimming, and the site is a favourite with youth groups such as cadets. The road from the community of Section/Silver Hill (just below Holywell on the Portland side) is very rough. Despite the condition of the site, there are still visitors, mainly school groups – particularly Cadets. The Forestry Department has some plans for re-developing the site however, the road will require significant attention.
