The Peatlands of Caithness and Sutherland - Management Strategy 2005 - 2015

The peatlands of Caithness and Sutherland are special. Nowhere else in Britain, and possibly the world, is there such a large area of this type of peatland. Many areas are recognised as Sites of Special Scientific Interest.

This strategy promotes the natural heritage of peatlands, as the beginning of a more co-ordinated approach to conserving this important habitat. This can go hand in hand with supporting the needs of local communities and the economy. The strategy recognises that peatlands are a place where people live and work and that the support of local communities is key.

This strategy is for everyone with an interest in peatlands. Whether you own a croft or a sporting estate or work for a public agency, you’ll find it very useful.
