Rural Network News – Finding the Finest Farm Woods in Scotland
The annual search to find Scotland’s finest farm woodlands has begun – with two prizes of £1000 up for grabs. Scotland’s Finest Woods Awards 2020 celebrates the programme’s 35th anniversary and builds on its biggest-ever year in 2019, with both farm woodland competitions returning after a fierce contest in 2019.
There is an ‘open’ Farm Woodland category and a specific award for younger farmers or crofters (and/or their forest managers) aged between 16 and 40 on deadline day, 31st March.
Commendations in the overall Farm Woodland Award 2019 stretched from Peeblesshire, where Peter Gascoigne farms, to Dalry in Ayrshire (W Shanks at Kerslochmuir, managed by Scottish Woodlands Ltd) and a croft woodland at Lagandorain on the Isle of Iona.
Deadline for Entries is March 31st 2020
