SNH Commissioned Report 322: Assessments of grazing and trampling impacts on upland habitats in the Cairngorms Core Area 1995-2000

A survey of grazing, browsing and trampling impacts of large herbivores in the Cairngorms was carried out between 1995 and 2000 to assist the Cairngorms Partnership and Scottish Natural Heritage develop a management strategy for moorland and montane habitats.

The objective of the assessments was to identify areas where habitats were impacted at levels likely to result in damage, deterioration or loss of the habitat. The survey also provided information on the causes of the impacts. Data were also gathered on the presence of large herbivores and tree and scrub regeneration.
