Lewis Hetherington swims with beavers

Bamff Beavers

We have just returned from a wild weekend at the Bamff beaver project in Perthshire.

The Ramsay family, who own the estate, are key players in current debates about beaver reintroduction in Scotland. Over three days at Bamff we learned about the beavers and their landscape, and participated in a set of creative experiments in landscaping…See More

On previous trips we had scoped out, explored and experimented with this complicated site; learning to read, interpret and work with the wild processes and inhabitants of the Wildland Project (Overend and Lorimer 2018). This time, we planned to make something: to create a text that…
