Why has Haddo got piles?

If you’ve visited Haddo this week you might have wondered why there are piles of netting, posts and bundles of wire lying around…

Thanks to the hard graft of Aberdeen University Officer Training Corps (OTC) we have made significant progress with ‘Explore Haddo’ – an educational area within the woodlands for visiting groups. Students from OTC volunteered this week and removed the top netting on one of the fences to create the boundary for ‘Explore Haddo’ – this is a space designed to allow groups to roam free within the defined area.

The students also dismantled another fence opening a second plantation for more adventurous visitors. We are really grateful for their hard work and it means that we can start to develop ideas for using ‘Explore Haddo’ more extensively. More details to follow…
