The Heart of The Glens Landscape Partnership Scheme is a programme that aims to provide a space to facilitate people to reconnect with the natural landscape, their native heritage as well as providing training in heritage skills, promoting tourism and business opportunities. To do this we are keen to link with the community though a range of projects, activities and events that will enhance understanding the unique heritage of The Glens and ensure that local heritage skills and training opportunities are available for all.
The scheme is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the NIEA and will focus on conserving and enhancing the natural and built heritage of the areas in the traditional Glens from Glentaise between Ballycastle and Armoy, in the north, to Glenarm in the south. We will also take in some of Glenravel (The 10th Glen!) and the uplands near Loughgiel.
The Heart of the Glens Landscape Partnership scheme comprises 6 main areas including:
Fair Head / Benmore
