Wildlife & Environment
We have 10,000 acres of forests. Sir John Stirling Maxwell planted the woodland around Loch Ossian between 1890 and 1950. The Forestry Commission planted the main forest block in the mid-1960s.
We are committed to improving our woodland biodiversity while protecting the landscape and its cultural heritage. We have a twenty-five-year forestry plan, approved by the Forestry Commission, to restore native woodland and peatland.
We are currently updating our long term forest plan and you will be able to download a copy here soon.
