Cashel Forest was established as ‘the Forest for a 1000 Years’ in the 1990s. Established by the Royal Scottish Forestry Society as a separate Trust, Cashel Forest Trust looks after 1253ha of beautiful countryside on the east shores of Loch Lomond in the National Park and in one of Scotland’s busiest areas for day visitors. With the forest well-established, the Trustees are seeking to develop the educational and recreational potential of Cashel and to promote the role of native woodland in particular and forestry in general. To that end, we are seeking to recruit a seasonal countryside ranger to be based at Cashel for the summer of 2021 up until 31.10.21. 

Job purpose: To complement the existing visitor management arrangements and provide a seasonal ranger service at Cashel Forest; to act as the eyes & ears of the Trustees over the visitor season in 2021 and to implement regular assessments and monitoring of visitors to Cashel and the use of the facilities there; to develop a programme of outdoor events at Cashel; and to work in co-operation with visitors, user groups, other stakeholders, neighbouring businesses and land managers and the local community around East Loch Lomond.
