Emily and I had a great time out on the peat with the Border Life crew in June. The story included information on peatland restoration in Dumfries and Galloway as well as diving into the aims and ambitions of Peatland Connections.
The story was created beautifully by Sandy McCracken and our camera man Paul. Filming took place up on the Forest and Land Scotland sites at Clatteringshaws Loch and South Dee. Both sites have successfully undergone restoration carried out by Forest and Land Scotland.
Take a look at the Border Life clip and we would love to hear your thoughts.

The Crichton Carbon Centre has several peatland projects currently. Through our collaborations with NatureScot we have a Peatland Action project officer as well as Peatland Action training which delivers peatland restoration training across Scotland. Peatland Connections is the third peatland project, funded by Esme Fairbairn and The Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership.
