Our members and those interested in becoming a member are cordially invited to attend this year’s Highland regional reception, held at The Storehouse of Foulis, Evanton, at 6.30pm on Wednesday 6 November 2019.

The theme is ‘What shall we tell our children?’ and we are delighted to announce we will be joined by both our SLE Chairman, David Johnstone and SLE’s Executive Director, Sarah-Jane Laing. We are particularly pleased that Andrew Thin, Chair of the Scottish Land Commission, has agreed to be our guest speaker at the event.

The regional reception is an opportunity to update you on the extensive work that has been carried out internally and externally within the organisation. This includes our recent paper ‘Route2050 A direction of travel for Scottish land management to 2050’, which explores what the priorities should be for land management in Scotland.

The reception provides an excellent networking opportunity and to meet with SLE colleagues, your Regional Chairman, Gordon Robertson, Highland Regional Support Officers, Jen Campbell and Megan Rowland, and SLE Board members.
