Carrifran Wildwood, Moffat Dale

Since 2000 this spectacular ice-gouged valley has been the site of the Carrifran Wildwood. The aim of the land management here - carried out by a voluntary group - is to restore the valley to ecological health. Before the coming of sheep, much of the Southern Uplands was a wooded landscape. The Carrifran Wildwood group's work on re-establishing native trees here - intervening just enough to allow nature to take a hold once more - enables visitors and others to better understand what much of the Border country would once have looked like.


Rough, informal paths and tracks, wet in places.
