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.
Almost a quarter of Scotland is covered by forests, but it is only now that people are able to rent and manage them for themselves.
By paying an annual fee to the land owner, Mr Rowe will be able to generate an income from woodlands at the Corsewall Estate near Stranraer, in return for helping with conservation.
