land management

Since 2015 we have completed agri-environment climate scheme (AECS) applications for Orkney Business Ring clients. Over thirty applications have been completed to date and all have been successful in receiving funding.

Working in partnership with Paul Johnson and Macaulay Scientific Consulting Ltd, we produced a monitoring protocol for assessing the impact of recreational activities on the designated habitats and species within and around the Loch Lomond islands.

We delivered a large scale advisory project for crofters on the Western Isles, which included the provision of 35 management plans and the submission of 20 SRDP applications for crofters in corncrake Special Protection Areas on Lewis and Barra.
