A Future for Moorland was written for The Scottish Gamekeepers Association, whose members are concerned about the lack of prominence given to moorland in most policy documents. This document does not discuss the management of moorland. Instead it identifies the importance of moorland as a habitat type but notes that there is no strategic guidance on which areas of Scotland should continue to be retained as moorland. Maps are given identifying the location of all remaining moorland in Scotland, together with suggested core areas which should be retained as such.
