The Castle O'er land management plan (LMP) covers an extensive area of conifer plantation that lies to the west of Eskdalemuir in Dumfries and Galloway.  It also incorporates a number of nationally important archaeology sites.

The plan will detail our proposals for management of the area over the next ten years. Draft versions of the plan will be published here and we invite comments and feedback from the public on all of our proposals.
