Glen Nevis land management plan amendment ("The Cut Wood")
The Cut Wood is a recent Forest Enterprise Scotland acquisition which lies around 5km south of Fort William at the foot of the Mamore mountain range close to Lundavra. The site also sits within the Blar a Chaorainn new planting area to the south of the main Glen Nevis forest. The crop was felled between 2003-2008 by a private owner and the current landscape value of the woodland is poor. A popular long distance walking path, the West Highland Way is routed through the site along the remains of the old Wade military road. The interior of the woodland offers views to the surrounding hills and glens set in an area of high scenic value and high recreational use.
The Land Management Plan will be part driven by a desire to design the restock in a sensitive manner and to reflect this by having the woodland sitting comfortably within the context of the wider landscape while retaining a strong core of commercial Conifer. This will be achieved through a diversification of species and redesign of forest edges especially around the West Highland Way.
The consultation period closes on Friday 14th April 2017
