Heather or something else?
Are Scotland’s heather moorlands a desirable ‘signature landscape’ or do we seek something else that reflects our uplands?
Your answer
How can we maintain the physical links between moorland landscapes but also recognise woodland expansion goals?
Your answer
Paying for management – heather moors need sustained management to be maintained and support a thriving ecosystem.
Other than the current model of grouse shooting, who will pay, how much will they pay and what actions will they pay for in order to maintain heather dominated moorlands?
Your answer

Your answer
Are further incentives or regulations needed to support or limit moorlands?
Your answer

Your answer
What changes to current management should there be to manage predation pressure on grouse and other ground nesting birds?
Your answer
What guidance and knowledge should the ‘Best Practice Moorland Management’ website offer?
