A small number of Red Deer lives in the Park, and rabbits; neither is causing concern, so there are no plans to manage them.  Otters are also to be found in the Park.
All this has been achieved by Forest Enterprise from their own resources, although they have more recently been aided by grants from the Millennium Forest for Scotland Trust.

LOOKING TO THE FUTURE.

The Forestry Commission in the past made mistakes by allowing the Park to decline, as outlined earlier. Criticisms have been made, often without much thought - for instance when land has had to be severely cleared of the Rhododendon Ponticum, it would tend to look bare and spartan. Instead of criticising Forest Enterprise for making the land unattractive, with a little common sense it should be realised that the land is being managed, and therefore will become more attractive in time.  However, only time will tell whether all the hard work being invested now will be a success.
 As the community becomes more involved, the Park will not only continue to give the islanders pleasure, but will become a major attraction for tourists, whether cycling, walking, fishing, studying plant-life and rocks, picnicking or simply walking the dog.  It also could and should be promoted as an educational resource, for the use of schools, youth groups and art groups.
