The Strathspey Land Management Plan (LMP) includes the forest blocks of Glenmore and Inshriach. The site is located near Aviemore in Strathspey and the plan identifies how we intend to manage the forests over the coming 10 years. The LMP covers an area of approximately 9,200 hectares. Strathspey is one of the largest and finest examples of Native Caledonian Pinewood that once covered a large proportion of Scotland. It is a highly designated forest for its rare habitats, species and scenic value. It has a long history of habitat restoration and conservation. It is highly used for recreation by both locals and visitors from outside the area.

The plan has been approved by Scottish Forestry. This land is part of Scotland’s National Forest Estate, owned by Scottish Ministers on behalf of the nation, and managed by Forestry and Land Scotland. The successful delivery of this LMP will contribute to the objectives of Forestry and Land Scotland’s Corporate Plan, as well as the priorities, objectives and vision of Scotland’s Forestry Strategy. The plan has been developed in accordance with the requirements of the UK Forestry Standard (UKFS) and its supporting guidelines. The UKFS is the benchmark for sustainable forestry practice, and the Scottish Government is committed to its use.
