Creran land management plan consultation
Glen Creran forest lies about 21 km north east of Oban and is accessed from the public car park at Elleric, towards the end of the minor public road that runs along the glen. The Land Management Plan (LMP) area covers 2,482 ha of forest and open land that extends from sea level to 760 metres, with conditions varying from sheltered glens to exposed hillsides and sub alpine conditions at the highest elevations.
Creran comprises two distinctive zones: the upper part of the forest supports productive conifer plantation while the lower part is native broadleaved woodland, mainly Ancient Semi-Natural Woodland (ASNW) designated as the Glen Creran Woods SSSI and SAC. The commercial conifer planting is predominantly Sitka spruce with some larch, Scots pine and other conifer species, planted in the 1960s, with small areas of 1970s planting.
We are at an early stage in the process of preparing the Creran Land Management Plan and welcome your initial questions and comments on the draft plan Brief below.
