Pitfichie and Corrennie land management plan
Pitfichie and Corrennie covers close to 2,500 ha made up of two forest areas separated by the A944 main road: Pitfichie to the North and Corrennie to the South. The site is located East of Alford and West of Monymusk. The main A944 road crossing over the site leads directly to Aberdeen 20 miles to the east. The river Don flows to the North.
Pitfichie is composed of a series of summits ranging from Pitfichie Hill 381m, Cairn William 448m, Pile of Stones 399m, White Lady 361m. Corrennie is however mainly located on the slopes of Green Hill and Red Hill. Its lowest point is located close to the river Don (around 100 meters high).
The composition of the woodlands in Pitfichie and Corrennie is diverse, mainly composed of conifer with some areas of broadleaves. The open lands are mainly composed of upland heathland located at the top of the hills.
The plan has been approved and is valid until 2027
