Eight members of the Heart of Scotland Forest Partnership visited the Trondheim area of Norway this May to participate in a training course hosted by Duncan Halley of the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research and funded through the Erasmus+ programme.

“The trip was informative and inspiring and all the participants gained a huge amount,” said Schiehallion land manager Liz Auty. "Our next step is to take these insights forward into our collective work in Highland Perthshire, so watch this space for further news!”

The Heart of Scotland Forest Partnership connects six areas of land with the aim of creating a linked woodland corridor stretching across more than 3,000 hectares, from the Keltneyburn Special Area of Conservation all the way to Loch Tummel.
