The socio-ecological NGO, Reforesting Scotland launched a campaign in May 2011 to promote the protection and expansion of hutting in Scotland. The Thousand Huts campaign has achieved a considerable amount in a short space of time. Last week the new Scottish Planning Policy included provision for huts in the planning system for the first time. Last night, BBC Scotland 2014 carried a great wee film by David Millar followed by a studio discussion with the journalist Lesley Riddoch.

    When we achieve a new wave of huts across Scotland, as I believe we will, there will be a great deal of dreaming, creative thinking and scheming taking place about the landscape and land use which surrounds them. It’s high time that urban Scots had a chance to re-connect with their country in the way that they do in the Nordic countries and over most of Europe. Anyone interested in hutting can come to the Hutters’ Rally in the Maryhill Burgh Hall on Saturday week (12th July). There will be talks, workshops, a panel and a trip to Carbeth huts in a double decker bus ! Details at or use the live link above.
