Several people have asked about maps of the project: of our plans, and the estate and its boundaries, tracks and buildings. Here is the Ordnance Survey map with an overlay showing boundaries. Tracks and buildings can be seen through the colour, and if they are not clear this map should help with orientation on a colour-free OS map. The yellow part we call South Bunloit, and the green part North Bunloit. The red circle is the location of our idea for an eco-development (the western part of Borlum Wood, all of which was clear felled under previous ownership).
The monoculture plantations we have been advised by many organisations to fell (as described in more detail in the FAQ and a good string on woodland) are best seen on a satellite photo. The two on peatland (the mauve colour) will be removed so that the bog can be restored. (A zone of native Scots pines along the east of the bigger plantation will not be felled). The three plantations on the Loch Ness slope will be replaced with mixed broadleafs.
Ian has asked for a map of our plans, but we haven't done one of those yet because we have so many decisions yet to take at the end of our year of conferring (including this mass outreach month, wherein we are trying in good faith to reach many locals who we haven't been able to reach up to now). Some examples of what I mean: there is no map of the actual North Bunloit development yet because we are gathering feedback on a rough architect's drawing as a good place to start on what preferences might be (including, of course, don't build anything!). In the woodlands we have been advised by some to install woodland crofts, and create hutting sites, but others want to keep the entire estate, apart from the proposed development in the north, as wildland, or managed land en route to wildland. Several conferees have said that there is way too much fencing on the estate, but we get different advice on what fence lines should come down. One set of conferees wants us to put a deer fence round the entire estate, and manage deer numbers tightly behind it, so helping native-tree regeneration. Others tell us that will simply transfer the deer problem to neighbouring land. And so on. There is a forestry map of the estate, but it depicts a historical plan, and not our yet-to-be finalised plan.
I hope this helps, for people we have not managed to talk to yet.
