The Forests of Inverness - 11

Following in the footsteps of Her Royal Highness, we too now enter Culloden Forest.

This woodland consists mainly of conifer trees such as Scots Pine, Norway and Sitka Spruce and Douglas Fir. There are several particularly large trees in Culloden Wood.

Broadleaved trees are retained throughout the forest during all operations, and Beech, Alder and Birch are planted to enhance the conservation and landscape value of the area.

Culloden Forest has been managed and worked by the Forestry Commission since 1926. It was previously owned by the Forbes family, from before the time of the Battle of Culloden.
