The Glen Hurich LMP area covers 4,400 ha of primarily conifer forest and open hill, located in the mountainous fringes of Western Lochaber, bounded by Loch Shiel to the West and the mountains of Ardgour in the East. Around 325 ha are identified as ancient woodland sites containing a mixture of confers and native woodland species. The plan proposes to continue the restoration and expansion of these native woodland areas, particularly along the water courses. The forest plan will look at how to harvest the current conifer crop including the alignment of new forest roads as well as introducing more diversity into the woodland in the future and protecting the key habitats. Glen Hurich is part of a larger area of forest and hill land managed by Forest Enterprise Scotland.
