Description

RV is Chia-aig Falls car park  NN176888, 2 km west of Clunes at the end of the Dark Mile on the B8005.  10:15 for 10:30 start

Woodland Trust Loch Arkaig consists of 1000Ha in 2 blocks of Caledonian pine, Glen Mallie and Gusach on the south side of the loch. 

These are undergoing restoration and removal of non natives.

There are proposals to extract 70,000T of non-native timber over the loch by a purpose built barge. One of the biggest pine wood restorations every attempted. 

There are so many interesting technical angles to discuss - including a complex and carefully planned harvesting programme involving multiple methods of extraction, freshwater barge transport, strong community and volunteer engagement, ospreys, deer and wild boar management, cultural and heritage elements etc etc
