Stranraer man first in Scotland to rent woodland

A man from Dumfries and Galloway has become the first person ever to rent a woodland in Scotland.

Mark Rowe will be responsible for the conservation of 37 hectares of land near Stranraer, but he will also be able to fell trees and make a profit.

It is part of a pilot project to help get more people involved in managing woodlands.
