As part of the of the continuing restoration of the Lews Castle Designed Landscape, the Stornoway Trust are carrying out mechanised mulching between the 23rd of May to the 6th of June.

There is an exclusion zone of 200m around the operational site which will be marked with threshold signs and policed by a banksman at all times, to ensure continued safe access within the grounds.

Works will begin at Windy corner, moving out towards Crow hill, then working back towards Strawberry Hill.

The works will clear debris and weed regrowth to allow follow up weed control and replanting over the next 18 months.

Stornoway Trust thank the public for their patience during the works, and if anyone has any questions, please contact the Trust office on 01851702002.
