Clifton Bain lives in Edinburgh and has over 25 years' experience working in nature conservation. He has visited all the main ancient pinewood remnants and has written a new book explaining their history, conservation management and how to reach them. A journey to the pinewoods offers a natural spectacle alongside a rich cultural heritage with visible traces of the people who have lived and worked there over the centuries.

This talk will provide a vivid and striking introduction to the ancient pinewood sites and will explain how their fate has turned from near extinction to a conservation success story.
