The future for those farming and crofting in Scotland’s hills and mountains will be under consideration at a horizon-scanning event in later this month. The day-long event is being organised jointly by the Lochaber Monitor Farm management group and NFU Scotland.

The aim of the meeting is to hear from a range of expert speakers and explore different views on the future use of Scotland’s hills and mountains – from the environmental perspective to the market opportunities.

Among the key speakers at the event will be Donald Cameron MSP, Laurent Vernet of Quality Meat Scotland, Claudia Rouse of Scottish Natural Heritage and Johnnie Hall of NFU Scotland.

The meeting aims to provide a strategic overview of how land in Scotland’s hills and mountains will be used in the future and to hear from a range of different viewpoints. A key focus will be identifying the public benefits delivered by active hill and mountain farming and crofting and helping farmers and crofters explore the future of farming in this areas.

The event is free to attend and open to farmers and crofters but places are limited and booking is essential. To find out more and book a place contact SAC Consulting Oban (contact details below)
