The Wildness on our Doorstep: Talla-Hartfell and Scotland’s Wild Land Areas

This free event is being organised by the Southern Uplands Partnership (external link will open in a new browser tab or window) as part of its Talla-Hartfell Wild Land Area project, which for the past couple of years has been focusing on land use and economic status of an area roughly demarcated by Moffat north to Stanhope, then southeast to The Gordon Arms, then south to Ettrick and west back to Moffat. At the heart of this area is the NatureScot Talla-Hartfell Wild Land Area.

Simon Brooks, Strategic Planning Manager for NatureScot (previously known as Scottish Natural Heritage), is giving the talk. He will be covering the rationale behind the recognition of the Wild Land Areas and looking at the attributes and benefits of the Talla-Hartfell Wild Land Area.

Scotland has 42 Wild Land Areas in total, only two of which are in the Southern Uplands.

You are very welcome to come along – the talk starts at 7 PM in Tweedsmuir Village Hall and online.
