NatureScot Research Report 890 - SCM survey of upland notified features on designated sites - Drumochter Hills
Site Condition Monitoring (SCM) is NatureScot's rolling programme of monitoring of the condition of natural features (habitats, species populations and earth science interests) on protected areas in Scotland. This report summarises the field data collected by Strath Caulaidh Ltd during SCM of five upland natural features on Drumochter Hills of Special Area of Conservation. Of the features assessed one was in favourable condition, one in unfavourable recovering condition and 3 were found to be unfavourable. Over-grazing was found to be the most significant reason for the habitats being in unfavourable condition.
