Description:  The 31-acre Fyfeshire Conservation area was given as a gift to the Town of Bolton by Helen L. PIummer in 1959. Its name comes from an area in Scotland where her ancestors the Fyfes originated.

The Fyfeshire conservation area hosts a scenic trail around a pond and a bridge crossing a dam. The trail ends at private property and does not go completely around the pond. Its picturesque sitting areas make it a wonderful spot for picnics. It features some uncommon trees such as black gum, white cedar and tupelo. During the summer blueberries can be found.

A trail easement from the dam leads all the way out to West Berlin Road. Along the way there is a junction with the Mountain Laurel Trail, which leads to Lancaster Road in Berlin.
