Edinburgh Lecture: Wildlife from a wild place: the flora and fauna of Glencoe National Nature Reserve


Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh

Thursday, 21 December, 2017 - 18:00

The National Trust for Scotland’s property at Glencoe is known around the world for its landscape and tumultuous history, but even amongst naturalists far fewer appreciate that it is a haven for rare flora and fauna. This talk aims to show some of the wide variety of plants and animals which occur from the floor of the glen to the high corries and rocky summits of the mountains, and also the Trust’s management at one of Scotland’s newest National Nature Reserves.

I have worked as an ecologist for the National Trust for Scotland at Ben Lawers NNR and Glencoe NNR for the past eight years. Previous to that I have worked as a ranger at Grey Mare’s Tail in Dumfriesshire and in the Trust’s Lothian properties including Newhailes, Inveresk Lodge and House of the Binns. I have also worked as a Ranger for the council in the Borders and for the NTS in Aberdeenshire. Having seen quite a bit of Scotland, there is nowhere I would rather be than in my current job!

Our lectures are held jointly with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh in their lecture theatre.
Tea will be available from 17:30.
