Corranbuie and Skipness land management plan
Corranbuie and Skipness are two adjoining woodland areas separated by an area of open moorland. The eastern coastal fringes are dominated by Atlantic oakwoods designated as the Tarbert to Skipness Coast SSSI and Tarbert Woods SAC. The northern part of Corranbuie backs onto Tarbert village, with important recreational area, legacy of the Millennium Forest for Scotland Trust project and Corranbuie Oakwood. The Kintyre Way runs through both woodlands. Much of Corranbuie is a diverse matrix of conifers and open space, whilst Skipness has a significant area of windblow to clear.
The primary objectives for the plan area are: commercial conifer timber production including clearance of a significant area of windblow in Skipness, construction of new forest roads to access the forest for harvesting, enhancement and protection of designated sites, and certification under the UK Woodland Assurance Scheme.
