Do you dream of a hut in the woods?

Huts are the focus of the latest issue of the much-loved magazine Reforesting Scotland, designed by Catalyst Campaigns. The magazine is selling out fast, so if you are one of Scotland's many hutting enthusiasts, contact Reforesting Scotland soon to become a member and receive a copy of the magazine. It includes articles about how to build your own hut, or how to buy a good quality off-the-shelf one if you are not inclined towards woodwork yourself. It also includes articles about the potential for many more hutting opportunities in Scotland, together with the launch of Reforesting Scotland's Thousand Huts campaign.

If you'd like to keep abreast of the latest hutting news, join the Thousand Huts campaign Facebook page, which already sports over 400 members.
