Patna Land Management Plan (LMP) includes two adjacent forest blocks covering a total of 705 ha which are split by a minor county road (C11). Patna forest occupies a hillside position to the west of the village of Patna on the A713 between Dalmellington and Ayr. Predominantly the area comprises of conifer forest interspersed with broadleaved species with some agricultural land to the west of the block. 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 this land management plan, that will define the management prescription for the ten year period between (2022-32), and presents the vision for the long-term management of the forest block.

Draft versions of the plan will be published here and we invite comments and feedback from the public on all of our proposals.

Community and consultation event

Scoping consultation with stakeholders (including the local community) is a requirement of the land management planning process but it is also a valuable opportunity for us to engage with the public, talk about our work, and discover what's important to you. Local 'drop in' events are a great way to do this but unfortunately these are not currently possible due to COVID-19 restrictions. We therefore introduced an online consultation option to give you the chance to comment. The consultation is now closed but thank you to all those who took the time to comment.
