Heather Blooming, Highlands, Scotland
Mar Lodge Estate is a Scottish Highland estate in Aberdeenshire, owned by the National Trust for Scotland. It is entirely contained within the Cairngorms National Park and important for nature conservation, landscape, recreation and culture.
Mar Lodge, under the direction of Shaila Rao, is undertaking a major realignment of their ecology, striving to bring back much more of the Caledonian Forrest that has been lost. To do that they are culling the deer population that suppresses growth of trees.
