Visitors to the Peebles Outdoor Film Festival (POFF) later this month will be offered the chance to get a first-hand insight into the work of the Trust at nearby Glenlude.

Since taking over ownership of Glenlude in 2010, we have worked with volunteers, schools, local groups and charities to gradually replace non-native commercial forestry plantations with native species.

The Glenlude Experience - a free walk-and-talk led by our land manager Karen Purvis - will take place on Sunday 27 January from 10am to 12noon. It will give an insight into how we are gradually rewilding a once depleted landscape on the edge of the Southern Uplands into a mosaic of flourishing native habitats. Read more about our work there in Karen's recent blog post.

Numbers are limited to 15, so please reserve a place. Meet at the main entrance to Glenlude (directions here), just off the B709 four miles south of Traquair village, postcode EH44 6PY.
