views of land and hills at Angus Glen

These iconic glens are the southern gateway to the Cairngorms National Park and we’re privileged to be looking after them for the future. This is a long-term project for us and an important opportunity to work with our neighbours and partners. 

Following the scoping consultation that was held in October 2023, we have analysed feedback, consulted further with stakeholders and delved into ecological survey results to develop a concept proposal which explains our intended land management objectives and how this would look on the ground in the future.

Have your say at our community consultation events

We are now looking to consult on our land management plan concept. We know how important these glens are to local communities and visitors. We intend to work closely with you through our planning process to explore opportunities for collaboration and community benefits.

An information display and feedback forms will be available in the Ranger Centre at Glen Doll from 30 May until 30 June, and our draft proposals and online feedback form will be available on this web page again too.

Initial consultation feedback

Thank you to everyone who has shared their feedback so far. You can view a summary poster of the feedback here.

We will continue to consult communities of interest as we develop a Land Management Plan covering Glen Doll and Glen Prosen through 2024. The Land Management Plan for Glen Isla, which includes Glen Markie, was consulted on in early 2023.

The Land Management Plan will take 12-18 months to develop and some initial changes to the landscape should be noticeable within two to three years although significant woodland expansion will take several more years.
