Thinking CAP: Upland Research & Management

The Thinking CAP: Upland Research & Management meeting took place at the Huntingtower Hotel outside Perth in March.  The meeting considered the state of upland research, with input from the Upland Research Team of the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, and then provided answers to a series of questions that considered the options that landowners and managers would like to see introduced as part of the review of the Scottish Rural Development Programme.  The questions were introduced by a range of experts.

The responses to the questions given during the discussion of the questions, and provided as written answers, have now been summarised in a report that can be downloaded from the News page of the Forum's website.  Additional information about the meeting can also be found on the same page.

Thanks go to the sponsors of the meeting: Turcan Connell, PDG helicopters, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Government.
