Area Map

Our Land

The Partnership area is centred in mid-Clyde valley, identified as an Area of Great Landscape Value (AGLV). The boundary of the AGLV runs along the valley shoulder on the immediate outskirts of a number towns forming a significant proportion of Glasgow’s south-east conurbation.

The Avon and Clyde Valleys and associated tributaries have been recognised for hundreds of years as a significant landscape in terms of its scenic, cultural and historic qualities.

The settlement pattern of linear villages along the valley connected with winding roads, policy landscapes, woodland, castles, rich agriculture and agricultural heritage, including distinctive orchards, is unique to Scotland.

The key characteristics, features and qualities of this landscape are: 

· narrow, steep sided valleys cut deeply into the farmlands;

· broadleaf woodlands on steep valley sides of rivers and tributaries;

· agricultural with a mixture of pastures, arable, market gardens and orchards;

· policy landscapes, castles and other historic sites;

· linear villages and winding roads;

· sheltered and settled areas, often hidden within wider landscape.

Proposed Support Schemes

It is proposed that the Partnership will develop a series of measures of assistance that will be available to agricultural/rural businesses. These constitute Agricultural State Aid and require approval by the EU prior to commencement. A pdf of the document submitted to the EU is available to download by clicking here.
