The Glenrickard land management unit is located between the towns of Brodick and Lamlash on the east of the island of Arran. Covering an area of approximately 1800 ha of which approximately 1200 ha are afforested with a mix of coniferous species and native broadleaves. It is part of Scotland’s national forests and land owned by Scottish Ministers on behalf of the people of Scotland and managed by Forestry and Land Scotland (FLS). 

Forestry and Land Scotland is currently revising the Land Management Plan (LMP) for this area. It is an opportunity for us to review the management objectives, and to set out our operations for the next ten years.

This page will be regularly updated with information, documents and maps as the plan takes shape.

Community consultation

It is important that we understand why this area is important to others. Consultation with stakeholders (including the local community) is a requirement of the land management planning process, but it is also a valuable opportunity for FLS to engage with the public, talk about our work, and discover what's important to you. 

A public consultation drop-in event was held in Lamlash on 18 June 2024.
