Guidance - Managing the impacts of beavers in Scotland

Guidance for land, property and infrastructure managers.

The law protects beavers but this doesn't mean you can't do anything to prevent damage they cause.  There are lots of things you can do without a licence.  This guidance explains how to get SNH help, what management does and doesn't need a licence and, if you need a licence, how to get one.
