Before you begin the Asset Transfer Request process, we suggest you read the Scottish Government's guidance and regulations, on which our Community Asset Transfer Scheme is based. You may also wish to read their summary guide introduction to what asset transfers are and whether they can help your community group:

Read our guidance

Our full guidance sets out how to develop and submit an Asset Transfer Request for land or buildings on the National Forest Estate - the land managed by Forest Enterprise Scotland. It also sets out how we will evaluate and make a decision on the request. A summary guidance document has also been created, for easy reference.

Find out information about the land

We have created a map-based Register of Land where you can find information about all the land and buildings we manage on Scotland's National Forest Estate. The map is quite large so please allow time for it load.

If you have any further questions about the land, you can also contact the Community Asset Transfer Manager at the contact details at the bottom of this page.

Complete an Asset Transfer Request form

Our application form and checklist sets out all the information you will need to provide to make an Asset Transfer Request. Please refer to our Guidance document for further assistance in completing this form:
