The blurb for my guided walk read “Join Gillian’s Walks and Rennie Mason, Whitelee Countryside Rangers on a visit to the tranquil, scenic side of the UK’s largest onshore windfarm at Cleughearn Plantation.

Roe deer may be spotted if we are quiet enough!” It seemed to spark an interest, and on Sunday 12th May 2019, an impressive 32 people headed out in 3 minibuses and a car to enjoy the walk! … More Whitelee’s Secret Forest – Valley Walkfest 2019
