Martin takes on waterfall role

A NEW ranger is on the trail for The National Trust for Scotland at the Grey Mare’s Tail near Moffat.

Martin Lyall joins the conservation charity and will be responsible for engaging with visitors to the waterfall beauty spot, as well as working closely with the community on events like the Moffat Walking Festival.

Martin, is a park ranger for City of Edinburgh Council, will also take on key projects including peatland restoration and path maintenance.

Speaking about his new role, he said: “My role as ranger at Grey Mare’s Tail is a real mix, from engaging with visitors and local communities, to carrying out biological surveys and recording. Day to day, you’ll find me maintaining paths, working on our vital peatland restoration projects and patrolling the reserve. All of this helps us to monitor, protect and share the magnificent natural heritage for visitors and local communities alike.”

Regional director Edinburgh and East at The National Trust for Scotland, Stuart Maxwell added: “We’re so pleased to be welcoming this talented specialist to the team, as our charity’s work to deliver our ten-year Nature, Beauty & Heritage for Everyone strategy, is well underway.

“The passion, enthusiasm and dedication brought by our staff is crucial in allowing us to deliver our vision, and we know that they’ll make a huge contribution to the places in their care and the communities that they are part of.”
