Dalbuie land management plan
Dalbuie Land Management Plan area comprises a landscape scale unit of 1,893 ha. The forest is located five miles south of Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsula. While Sitka Spruce is the dominant productive species due to site constraints, opportunities do exist to diversify both species and age structure. The forest has a comprehensive road network which has enabled restructuring to be carried out across most of the mature forest area. Large areas of the Land Management Plan have been significantly windblown in recent years. An additional area (20 ha) on the western boundary purchased from Pennygown farm is also allocated for woodland creation during the plan period.
This Land Management Plan is currently in its final draft which includes proposals for felling and replanting as well as wider land management objectives involving issues such as climate change, cultural heritage and nature conservation. The final draft version of the plan, and related maps, are available below.
We would welcome any further comments you may have during this final consultation period.
