Welcome to the website of Affric and Kintail Deer Management Group.
Located in Wester Ross in the North West Highlands, Affric and Kintail Deer Management Group covers an area of approximately 34,194 ha and includes an area of land from Kintail to Cannich including Glen Affric. The area is bounded by Loch Mullardoch to the north and the northern marches of Glen Moriston DMG to the south.
Whilst recognised as a DMG in its own right, the Group is part of the wider South Ross cluster of DMGs which includes Glen Moriston DMG to the immediate south, Lochalsh DMG to the north west and Glen Strathfarrar to the north east. Strathconnon DMG is also part of South Ross but is not an immediate neighbour. There is also communication with Glenelg DMG to the south.
With active engagement between all neighbouring DMGs in the area including, this ensures a landscape collaborative approach to deer management.
Combinations of land use objectives and priorities vary from property to property throughout the DMG management area but as a whole Conservation is a common and strongly shared focus of all. Further information on all aspects of deer management can be found in the Deer Management Plan.
The previous Deer Management Plan has been updated to a Collaborative Land Management Plan to reflect the breadth and depth of the actions contained in the plan which go further than simply deer management. The Plan will run from 2016 to 2021 and is available to download. The Group welcomes and encourages feedback on the Plan at any time. Please send comments to the Plan Consultant Dr Linzi Seivwright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
