I have heard that BASC lease on Arran ends in April. It is then meant to go out to bidding like all other leases. If on the open market the prices of £10 per hectare with certain forest companies, this will be interesting to see what it will fetch and who gets it. Cant imagine it will remain inexpensive packages of stalking with BASC for long then!
It does seem to have fallen out of sync with timing of other FC leases being available, could gain more intense biding with gold medal heads having come off it.
