It seems as though October is the month of announcements. We have been able to share the news of our 2 new reserves, but it doesn’t stop there. Read on to find out more!
2 New Reserves
You may have heard our exciting announcement of our 2 new reserves- Kilnaish Estate & Glen Nant Nature Reserve. This is an incredible landmark in Highland Titles’ journey; as our Mountain View Reserve is now full, it allows us to continue our conservation efforts further across Scotland.
KIlnaish Estate is similar to our other reserve projects- a beautiful estate that we will work to restore as part of a long term rewilding project. This has been supported by you, our wonderful community, and will continue to be funded by the 10 and 100 square foot plots we will be selling there.
Glen Nant is something a little different. Known as Scotland’s Rainforest, due to its untouched ancient oak woodland, we aim to simply leave the area as it is. To do this we will be working in partnership with Nature Scot, Scotland’s Nature Agency, and therefore we will not be selling plots for this location.
This month we made an appearance on national television as a feature on ‘Don’t Waste Scotland.’ Don’t Waste Scotland is a new show from Sean Batty who travels around Scotland meeting people who are doing their bit to make Scotland a more environmentally friendly place.
We were delighted to take part and shine a light on some of the work that takes place at the Reserve. Sean was a big fan of hedgehogs, so we took him to meet our latest spiky addition. The wee hog (who Sean named Sunny), was a healthy weight so Sean was able to help with their release into the Forever Home.
This month we have welcomed back our Animal Expert Andrew Bowers. Andrew previously worked for us from 2018-2020, but left to be with his now fiancée in Orkney. However, he couldn’t stay away long and we are delighted to have him back to help with all our spikey, furry and feathered friends.
Our Queen Bee, who has been missing in action, has returned! Although it is not uncommon for Queen Bees to disappear it is very unusual for them to return. So we can keep track of her this time, Meik marked her with a white dot before she was welcomed back into the hive.
