Who We Are

Moorland Group

The Scottish Moorland Group (SMG) has been in operation since 2010 as a specialist group within Scottish Land & Estates, with a focus on over 100 moorland and grouse shooting estates. It is chaired by Lord Hopetoun, and the Director is Tim Baynes. Membership is made up of seven regional groups of moorland owners and managers, as well as representatives of the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) and the Scottish Gamekeepers Association (SGA), to give a strong local and practical emphasis. SMG has strong links with Wildlife Estates Scotland.
