Clan marks barony with tree gift

Members of Clan Grant
The Clan Grant Society made their donation to mark the barony milestone

Two hundred trees are to be added to woodland earmarked for the return of beavers and wild boars following a donation from the Clan Grant Society.

A Quincentennial Grove will be created within Dundreggan Estate in Glen Moriston to mark the 500th anniversary of the clan obtaining a barony.

The title was given to Clan Grant by King James IV.

Trees for Life bought Dundreggan for 1.6m. It has a plan to re-introduce wildlife once native to Scotland.
