SRDP Success

In the last round of Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) funding the Horgabost & Seilebost and Scaristavore Common Grazings were successful with applications for measures to balance livestock and environmental management. The Trust congratulates both common grazing committees on their efforts and is delighted that they are able to be rewarded for carrying out additional works and practices that benefit the environment. Luskentyre common grazings had previously been successful with a similar application so the greater part of the estate is now actively managed for environmental benefit.
