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 atÂ Creag Meagaidh.
I’ve not quite fully grasped the economic argument, but I’m sure there is someÂ environmental benefit – mind youÂ Kilda will still be burning fuel /Â producing methane when not in use!
Still, all in all a more pleasant ‘footprint’ to encounter on the ground.
The use of theÂ noisy quads is alwaysÂ minimised by theÂ SNH here at Creag Meagaidh – they also use all electric, all terrain buggies, powered from their very own hydro scheme!
That aside, onceÂ KildaÂ is fully up to speed perhaps I will Â get to live my Roy Roger’sÂ boyhood dream and ride overÂ that pass and down the Window…….way to go Trigger!
