The scheme represents the restoration of an iconic highland landscape, involving a large area of ecological regeneration.
Originally the site was populated by broadleaf woodland and inhabited by eagles, badgers, red squirrels, pine martins, otters and a large mix of songbirds.
Excessive levels of grazing by sheep and deer have gradually undermined the site’s ecology which this new scheme aims to restore.
The scheme will be planted with a mix of Scots pine, birch, oak, alder and Sitka Spruce. These will provide the foundations for regenerating the local ecology.
