Community Groups


Scotland’s regional moorland groups began life in 2015, providing representation for the work of sporting estates within their local communities. Since that time, seven regional moorland groups have been formed stretching from Loch Ness Rural Communities in the north down to the Lammermuirs Moorland Group further south.

Each group has undertaken initiatives, decided upon by gamekeepers at a local level, to demonstrate the value that estates play in their region. This has then been showcased across a range of platforms, most notably on social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The groups have also played a significant role in The Gift of Grouse campaign, generating positive news and features stories which can then be told at a national level.

The following directory provides details of where you can find the groups online – please give them a visit, a like or a share, and find out more about what is happening on moorland across Scotland.
