Help Eric Baird, head ranger of the beautiful Glen Tanar estate, with two possible projects (weather dependant):

2. Removing the remaining section of a very corroded deer fence which the volunteer group started two years ago.
Please get in touch with James Brownhill (work party coordinator) as soon as possible if you'd like to attend.
