As part of the progress toward our application to the NFLS, today the District valuer David Herriott came to look over the forest, and myself and Michael Kaufmann accompanied him for the morning. It was an overcast day, but the views were as impressive as ever.
We also looked at the piece of deciduous woodland above the clachan. Unlike earlier in the year when we visited this piece of woodland with GorDon Gray Stephens of the Woodland Association, it wasn’t the sylvan paradise we’ve come to expect, but it was lovely nevertheless.
The valuer will report by the 10th of September in time for our big public consultation day, the Stronafian Sunday Sandwich — more of which later!
