One of the site visits on our woodland heritage workshop on 31st May 2012 for Cairngorms Community Heritage programme (led by RCAHMS, supported by Cairngorms National Park, workshop tutors Peter Quelch & Coralie Mills) was to an overgrown old oak coppice wood at Loch Pityoulish. The many tree-forms made for interesting discussions amongst the group who embodied wide ranging interests and expertise.  Our visit provided a first glimpse into the history of these woods, a legacy of the expansion in oak planting about 200 years ago, with great potential for further exploration and research.
