NS4377 : Lang Craigs Woodland: a new fence

taken 6 years ago, 3 km from Milton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Lang Craigs Woodland: a new fence
Lang Craigs Woodland: a new fence
A sign on the gate warns of ongoing forestry operations in the wooded area on the Long Crags (the far side of the fence). The fence, being a new boundary, does not correspond with any of those that are, at the time of writing, shown on the OS map.

The land on the near side of the fence is part of the new Lang Craigs Woodland. The wooded area up on the crags is Forestry Commission land; it was later cleared, as comparison with an equivalent later picture, NS4377 : Gate in fence, makes clear. See also NS4477 : Fences near the Doughnot Hill.
Lang Craigs Woodland

The woodland occupies 240 hectares (590 acres) that were acquired by the Woodland Trust Scotland in 2011. It is named after the Long Crags (or Lang Craigs), a line of cliffs Link making up the facade of the Kilpatrick Hills plateau. Lang Craigs Woodland is one of the 13 Commonwealth Woods, and is an SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest). New paths have been laid out (waymarkers were added in May 2015), and about 160 hectares of new native woodland planted.
