What is a Cleuch?

Cleuch Planting

We have just completed a Cleuch native planting project and when talking to people about this work it occured that some people might not know what a Cleuch is.

This is the scots word for a gorge, ravine, cliff or crag. Cleuch's can be very interesting places to find yourself, rich in flora and fauna you can come across some really intesting sights. Trees somehow grow out of rock faces where there roots are above there crown and recently we even came across some wild goats wondering around.

This film shows a Cleuch that we have recently restocked with native tree species in order to help the Black Grouse population re-establish itself.
