We look forward to welcoming you to Scotland's forests. To enjoy your visit safely please plan ahead, follow local signage and park considerately.

Forestry and Land Scotland recognises that Gaelic is an important part of Scotland's heritage, national identity and cultural life. We are committed to helping ensure that Gaelic has a sustainable future in Scotland.

As a new agency, we are currently working with Bòrd na Gàidhlig in relation to the development of a Gaelic Language Plan and will begin development of the Plan in April 2020.

Our predecessor organisation, Forest Enterprise Scotland, worked closely with Forestry Commission Scotland on the development and implementation of a Gaelic Language Plan. Published in 2017 it set out how the organisations sought to:

  • use Gaelic in the operation of our core functions
  • enable the use of Gaelic when communicating with the public and key partners
  • promote and develop Gaelic within the organisation

You can read the full Gaelic Language Plan - in both English and Gaelic - at the links below:
