Forest Heritage Scotland

Fun with forestry and history!

From the Forest Heritage Scotland website:

"Discover the deserted villages, settlements and wartime relics of Scotland's national forests, through a new website and a series of events and activities across Scotland throughout 2009. Walk in the footsteps of the people who lived and worked there, explore the traces they left behind, find out why they left and where they travelled. Stones in the woods tell of clearances, of lives turned upside down, of illicit stills, of wartime defences.... and of ordinary people getting on with their lives. Our website www.forestheritagescotland.com is the place to start your journey: there are around 50 locations featured, which will illustrate some of the stories behind the ruins."
