CVS Action Earth Grant

Bute Forest has been awarded £250 to engage volunteers in clearing a
path around the pond, measuring and improving the biodiversity and
creating a wildlife-attracting patch of flowers. You can help us out by
contacting Emma, Forest Manager.

Hydro Turbine Donation

We’ve made a great step forward with our small scale hydro scheme plans
for the commercial forest with a donation of an old but very solid
turbine!

Highlands & Islands Enterprise Grant

HIE awarded Bute Forest a grant to contribute to the cost of equipment
needed for the continued management of the forest. You may spot our
lovely ‘vintage’ tractor out and about in the forest, our first
purchase.

Mountain Bike Trail

We were really lucky to have a days free consultation with a mountain
bike trails designer earlier this month. We’re hoping for some further
assistance with training our volunteers later in August.
