Other PLACE Projects

The PLACE initiative has been running projects in Borgue, The Stinchar Valley and the Wigtownshire Moors. These areas cover two local authority areas and were selected due to their distinctive landscape character and the desire of local communities to engage more with their local natural and cultural heritage. This page provides links to some of the items that have been created from the Stinchar Valley projects.
