CCDT has purchased 64 hectares of Polmaise Wood
Cambusbarron Community Development Trust is proud to announce that on Tuesday the 20th August 2019 we finally completed the purchase of 64 hectares of Gillies Hill, on behalf of the local community. This will allow the community to have an active role in protecting, managing and developing the Hill.

CCDT awarded over £425,000!
When we leased a substantial part of the Gillies Hill in 2015 we could only dream of this day. We are most grateful to the Scottish Land Fund for this award which will enable us to proceed with the plan to purchase the woodland. The grant will be augmented by community fund raising, personal donations and other sources to complete the purchase.
