West Sutherland

We are currently carrying out a scoping exercise for future management proposals covering forest blocks located in western Sutherland. The proposed Land Management Plan (LMP) will detail how we intend to manage the forests over the coming ten years and will indicate our vision for the next 25 years. The proposed LMP will be a full revision of two Forest Design Plans (FDPs): Benmore FDP and Capplich, Craggan, Einig (& Loubcroy) FDP, and will cover an area of 6684 ha. Forest blocks included in the proposed West Sutherland LMP are located along the A837, in a remote and dramatic area of western Sutherland.

We are hoping to gather information and suggestions that will inform our management proposals for the above area. We would be happy to receive any information and comments by the 15th of October 2017 – that will allow us to integrate them into the planning process.
