Athnamulloch New Native Pinewood, Glen Affric.

The photograph is courtesy of Inverness, Ross and Skye Forest District and staff at their Fort Augustus office.


The occasion was the first tree planted in May 1990 for the Forestry Commission on the Athnamullach New Native Pinewood on the national forest estate in Glen Affric by Magnus Magnusson KBE, Chairman of the Nature Conservancy Council Committee for Scotland. Assisting him in the task (on the right) is Forestry Commission Chairman Sir Raymond Johnstone.

The stainless steel border spade used for the ceremony was inscribed and currently (2016) hangs on the wall of the FC office at Fort Augustus.

Magnus was Chairman of NCCS, as Scottish Natural Heritage was not yet in being.

The PDF shows a wider view of the general area.
