Grazing Rights at Ben Lawers
Ben Lawers National Nature Reserve is one of the botanically richest areas in Britain, renowned and designated for its outstanding range and diversity of arctic-alpine species. Grazing rights on the property under ownership of nearby farmers have prevented the Trust from meeting their botanical conservation objectives on the land. Through the generosity of the Jeniam Foundation, the Trust was able to acquire 244 heritable grazing rights on hill ground at Ben Lawers without having to acquire additional land. This significant investment enabled the Trust to progress toward the objective of having management control of their land at Ben Lawers.
