Coppicing and Hurdle Making Course, Kilchoan, West Ardnamurchan

23rd February - 24th February

Come and learn the traditional crafts of coppicing and hurdle making in one of Scotland’s most beautiful locations. Visit one of the last remnants of Atlantic Oakwoods and learn how to coppice in a way that is sensitive to the rare, local environment and in line with SNH recommendations for the area. After a morning collecting your own materials, the rest of the course will focus on making hurdles.
