Rural land use conflict in the Cairngorms National Park - Grouse Moors

(0)
An engaging PowerPoint presentation detailing a very topical rural land use conflict in the Cairngorms National Park - the driven shooting of grouse on grouse moors. The slides detail the viewpoint of the estates managing these moors and the opinion of environmental pressure groups such as “Revive”. The content is relevant to GCSE geography courses as well as National and Higher geography courses in Scotland. Links are embedded in the slides to two relevant film clips. Tasks involve asking students to present both sides of the argument, as well as voicing their own opinion on this issue. Too many resources on rural land use conflict cover well worn arguments that students have difficulty engaging with. This topic is very relevant and something students can really get their teeth into. Named examples should help to boost marks when it comes to formal assessments.
