The Glen Croe Land Management Plan (LMP) area (PDF 1.9MB) covers a total of 3082ha, over half of which is open hill ground. Elevation ranges from near sea level to 926m. The plan area lies entirely within the Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and includes the popular and iconic hills of the "Arrochar Alps". The main A83 trunk road climbs through Glen Croe itself to its summit at the Rest and Be Thankful which offers fine views back down the glen.

The earliest planting took place in the 1920s and the forest was established with timber production as a priority. Timber production will remain an important objective but already the woodland area is increasing in diversity as sections are felled and restocked with a variety of tree species and objectives in mind. This plan sets out current objectives and describes, in some detail, how these will be achieved over the next ten years. Proposals for the following decades are considered in less detail.



The revised plan was submitted for approval to Forestry Commission Scotland (FCS) on 17th April 2018. Following final consultation minor changes have been made to the plan text and maps which are accessed from the links below. FCS will now formally approve the plan.
