forestpicRhubodach Forest is an area of, ancient woodland, commercial forest, moorland and coast on the Isle of Bute.  In July 2010 Bute Community Land Company (a charitable company owned by the residents of the island) purchased 161 hectares of forest and acquired rights over a further 535 hectares for footpaths, cycle paths and hydro schemes.

Right from the start, the purchase of the forest was seen as the first important step in the community taking charge of its own destiny and leading the social and economic regeneration of the island.
