The New York Times published an interesting article about Thomas MacDonell, a rich businessman who has purchased 200,000 acres in Scotland. He intends to restore the peatland in the Glenfeshie valley and use it as a carbon sink to sell offset credit against, while also offering luxury nature based accommodation on the land. This may be of interest to rural communities in Ireland who could do the same, given the current row over new turf cutting laws in Ireland.
