3 Seasons in the Park - with visitors!
Path Works Event
Saturday 21st May 10am-3.30pm.
Paths for All is a Scottish charity who promote everyday walking as a way to a healthier, happier Scotland. They have an excellent website containing a host of information including Walking For Health and Community Paths together with details on support and funding.
A number of the Friends of Plean Country Park members have attended Paths for All courses at their National Path Demonstration site at Oatridge College near Linlithgow.
We are fortunate that Paths for All have agreed to hold a Community Paths event in Plean Country Park which is an ideal opportunity for volunteers to gain skills and contribute to improving and upgrading one of the paths within the park. The event is free and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
New facilities coming soon...

Help save Loch Arkaig woodland
The Woodland Trust has launched a campain to purchase the Loch Arkaig Pine Forest.
The Loch Arkaig Pine Forest combines two areas of native Caledonian pine, oak and birch woodland. The 1,200 acre western wood, Coille a Ghuibhais ('the pine forest') and the 1,300 acre eastern wood, An t-Seann Fhrith ('the old deer forest') together comprise one of the largest remaining fragments of ancient Caledonian pinewood in Scotland.
Sadly, the forest has been left degraded, a result of the clear-felling of ancient woodland in the 18th century, the planting of non-native conifers in the 1960s and grazing by sheep and deer. The land also bears the scars of training exercises by the very first commando units during the Second World War.
