Margaret Mitchell, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Central Scotland, paid a visit to Callendar Estate on Monday, 19 May 2014.
Organised by Scottish Land & Estates Regional Manager Scott Petrie, Mrs Mitchell met with Guy Wedderburn, the Estate Manger and learned of the many ways in which the Estate engages with the local community on a range of subjects including management of the community woodlands, access and cycle trails and acts as an enterprise hub for various business opportunities.
Of particular interest were the estate biomass enterprise and the business opportunities that the new John Muir Trail, which runs across the Estate, will offer.
Commenting on the visit, Mrs Mitchell said, “I thoroughly enjoyed the visit and seeing the hugely diverse activities the estate is involved in. It was a very worthwhile visit”.
