Glen Devon and Glen Sherup Land Management Plan
The forests of Glen Devon and Glen Sherup sit within the dramatic landscape of the Ochil hills to the south of Auchterarder in Perth and Kinross. The blocks cover a combined area of almost 1,200 ha of predominantly commercial timber crops. First rotation crops planted in the 1960’s and 70’s are now reaching maturity and the process of restructuring the forest is well under way.
As well as being an important centre for timber production the forests also provide excellent opportunities for recreation with two public car parks allowing access to the woodlands and the wider hills beyond.
