Wood­land group lands £224,000

A COM­MU­NITY group in Lochaber has been awarded £224,000 to buy wood­land.

The Scot­tish Land Fund grant was given to Glen­garry Com­mu­nity Wood­land to al­low it to pur­chase land which it will then de­velop to ben­e­fit the public, through parks and foot and cy­cle paths.

Dave Thompson, MSP for Skye, Lochaber and Bade­noch, said he was ‘de­lighted’ about the grant.

He added: ‘ The pur­chase of Glen­garry Wood and the for­mer Forestry Com­mis­sion de­pot will in­volve the wood­land and for­mer de­pot be­ing de­vel­oped and man­aged to pro­vide a wide range of eco­nomic, so­cial and en­vi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits to the lo­cal com­mu­nity, which is fan­tas­tic news.’
