Abriachan Forest Trust hosts a gathering as part of the #OurLand Festival this Sunday, sixteen years on from the launch of the white paper there which led to the 2003 Land Reform Act that ended feudal law, opened up access to the countryside and gave communities the right to buy.
Now the Abriachan Gathering on Sunday 30 August aims to bring Highlanders and all interested folk together to see how a community owned forest works, and hear how further progress will be achieved. Speakers include broadcaster Lesley Riddoch, Peter Peacock from Community Land Scotland, Angus McCall from Scottish Tenant Farmers Association and Isla O'Reilly of Highlands & Islands Greens.
The free event starts at 10am Sunday 30 August at Abriachan Forest Trust. To book and for further details please visit https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/abriachan-gathering-our-land-scottish-land-festival-tickets-18179601678 or https://www.facebook.com/events/951749111556837/.
