Newtyle land management plan
Newtyle is located to the south of the village of Rafford between the A940 towards Granton on Spey and B9010 towards Elgin, and it covers approximately 722 hectares.
Newtyle is a forest of transition, straddling the watershed between the Findhorn to the west and the Lossie drainage to the east; between the well- established forest landscape of Altyre and Darnaway and the more mixed and moorland landscapes top the south and east; between the coastal plain and the uplands.
