Farming forms a small but precious part of the jigsaw of activities on our land. Predominantly hill and mountain, we raise livestock on ‘in-by’ land close to settlements in the Glens where conditions permit and grow grass in a small number of fields to cut for sileage to help see our stock through the winter.

Our farming takes place at Glenshero and Killiechonate. Over time, we hope to create opportunities for partners to farm on our land and in doing so breathe life back into some of the historic steadings and, in turn, into the communities that they inhabit.

We look for this activity to complement the other operations on the land and to provide an interesting and accessible place for people to visit.
