What Do You Know About Dun Coillich?
Dun Coillich is your land managed by Highland Perthshire Communities Land Trust (HPCLT). The Trust was set up in 2002 following the purchase on behalf of the community of 418 hectares of land centred on the small hills of Dun Coillich (572m) and Dun Beag (403m), between Glen Goulandie and Schiehallion. The whole area is now referred to simply as Dun Coillich. HPCLT’s overall aim is to create an environment to benefit both wildlife and the well-being of Highland Perthshire residents and visitors.
This will be achieved through the restoration of a healthy ecosystem, which includes the planting of native trees, such as scots pine, downy birch, rowan and sessile oak.
If you like the sound of this, come along to the 2017 AGM and find out more; it’s at 2pm on Saturday 25th March at Grandtully Hall. The AGM will be quite short, and there will be a talk by Jon Hollingdale, Chief Executive Officer of the Community Woodlands Association, illustrating the diversity of community woodlands and the various activities the woodlands support. There will also be light refreshments, displays illustrating some of the exciting work being done by HPCLT and the chance to talk to some of the people actively involved.
A very recent development has been the donation to HPCLT of a small field in Aberfeldy for use by the community. At this stage, we have no firm views about how the land might be used – another reason for coming to the AGM to find out more and give us your ideas.
