Restoring an ancient woodland in community ownership

Read our case study about how woodland is being restored and managed thanks to the local communities.

Aigas Woods is a relic of a once dense, much larger, pine forest near Inverness. After several years of hard work, it is now owned by the local community and is being restored.

The community ownership at Aigas is proving beneficial to the sustainable future of the woodland.
