Welcome to the website of Strathconon Deer Management Group.

Strathconon Deer Management Group (SDMG) is located in the Highlands. Originally part of South Ross DMG which was formed in the 1960’s, South Ross DMG was divided into smaller management areas in 2012 including Strathconon, Glen Strathfarrar, Affric & Kintail, Lochalsh and Glen Moriston DMGs.
The Group is made up of 8 main members and the total Group area is approximately 55,045 ha, bounded to the north-west by the A890 Lochcarron to Achnasheen Road and to the north by the A832 from Achnasheen to Muir of Ord, which includes part of the A835.  From Muir of Ord, the southern boundary of the Group is slightly more complex following the southern marches of Fairburn Estate (through Gleann Goibhre), Strathconon Estate and Glencarron & Glenuaig Estate.
The Group maintains active communication and engagement with all neighbouring DMGs to ensure a landscape collaborative approach to deer management.

Combinations of land use objectives and priorities vary from property to property throughout the DMG management area but as a whole Conservation is a common and strongly shared focus of all. Further information on all aspects of deer management can be found in the Deer Management Plan.

The previous Deer Management Plan (2016 to 2021) has now been adopted. Should you wish to comment on this plan, please send comments to the Plan Consultant Dr Linzi Seivwright at linzi@caorann.com.
