Newcastleton land management plan

Newcastleton Forest comprises 2376 Ha of predominantly upland conifer forest located in the very south of the Scottish Borders, immediately east of Newcastleton village and adjacent to Kershope and Lewisburn Forests in Northumberland.

We are in the process of reviewing and revising the land management plan (LMP) for Newcastleton Forest.  Draft versions of the land management plan will be published here and we invite comments and feedback from the public on our proposals.
