Clunes Forest School
This formerly disused Forestry Commission office has been refitted and kitted out with identification equipment to transform it into a forest classroom. Outside, a butterfly garden, community composting site, tree nursery and willow coppice have been created. A community group has been set up to manage the facility and the classroom is used by walkers on the Great Glen Way, schools, rangers and workshop leaders. The project also attracted funding from Forestry Commission Scotland, SNH and the Community Economic Development fund. Forestry Commission own and maintain the site.
