The background to John Mackay, man and boy in the North Highlands  - sheep farming and moving into forestry and contracting.


The 80’s

The changes between then and now – the downturn of the estates, the planting of trees and how different and hard life was at that time.


Work Now & Equipment

The changes in the work being done and the kind of equipment that is suitable - some of the designs led by John and his years of experience.


A Difficult One

Specialized groundwork that is and has been done in the wetlands by John and his company and his thoughts and hopes for the future. Past funding initiatives and the budget available do rule the work being done now


Drains & Furrows in the Long Run

Trying to do the best job that can be done and understanding the big picture - short and long term.
