North Scotland

The North Scotland Region extends from the Central Belt northwards and is especially diverse, from the urban fringe of Scotland’s major cities to the highest mountains and most remote parts of Scotland. The Region is divided into 5 Area teams headed up by Andrew Vaughan FICFor, Regional Manager, who has 36 years experience in the industry.

Each team comprises an Area Manager, Senior Forest Managers, Forest Managers, and Assistant Forest Managers, including graduates. The client base is particularly broad, ranging from small landowners and farmers to large private estates, developers, investors, other commercial businesses, local authorities, conservation bodies and non governmental organisations (such as NatureScot, the Woodland Trust Scotland, and Forest & Land Scotland). This requires a service tailored to the needs and objectives of each client, offering practical, cost-effective advice and management with staff possessing a diverse blend of experience and skills, tailored to the local needs of their clients.

Regional Teams

The North Highland Area team is based in Inverness; the Central Scotland East and West Area teams are based in Dunblane; the West Highland North Area team in Oban; and the West Highland South Area team in Dunoon and Lochgilphead.
