An import from the Scottish Natural Heritage site on Rhum, now being put through her paces on the Meggie trails.
The SHN are attempting to re-introduce the use of hill ponies to assist with deer extraction here at Creag Meagaidh.
I’ve not quite fully grasped the economic argument, but I’m sure there is some environmental benefit – mind you Kilda will still be burning fuel / producing methane when not in use!
Still, all in all a more pleasant ‘footprint’ to encounter on the ground.
The use of the noisy quads is always minimised by the SNH here at Creag Meagaidh – they also use all electric, all terrain buggies, powered from their very own hydro scheme!
That aside, once Kilda is fully up to speed perhaps I will get to live my Roy Roger’s boyhood dream and ride over that pass and down the Window…….way to go Trigger!
