Podcast: Muirburn on Common Grazings

This podcast is an interview with Alastair Culbertson Chairman of the Sleat General Grazings. It explores how the group have proactively organised muirburn in their grazings. This is to reduce the risk of wildfire and to improve the quality of grazing for the crofter’s sheep and cattle. It covers a new Fire Danger Rating System.
