We are working with the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust to promote our Golden Plover Award for Scotland. In addition to an integrated approach to moorland management, which is carried out to a high standard, this year we are seeking applicants who use sheep as an integral part of their management regime.
We will welcome applications from all parts of Scotland, the more remote the better! Applicants are not restricted to estates or landowners; we will value applications from tenant farmers and crofters.
If you value the management that your sheep provide for your moorland, you will be eligible to apply for the award.
There is more detail about the Award on the dedicated website.
The deadline for applications is 23 March 2016 so that we can review applications and select the winner in the for the award to be made at the Scottish Game Fair on 1 July 2016.
We are grateful to Lindsays - who are Edinburgh based solicitors - for sponsoring the Golden Plover Award, this year.
